Operation143 is a 501c3 nonprofit organization, providing food to students in our community who would go without over the weekend. We work to help homeless and hungry students succeed by addressing the issue of childhood hunger.

Make The Difference.

Working alongside individuals and organizations to collect food, Operation143 packs these items into backpacks.

Be the Difference.

Sent out to qualifying students, the backpacks are discretely picked up each Friday and returned on Monday. The process begins again for the next weekend.

Create The Change.

Right in our community, there are children who are homeless and considered chronically hungry. Help someone today.
