DECATUR, Ill. - DECATUR -- Millikin University is making sure kids don't go hungry.
Students kicked off the Blue Backpack Initiative with Dennis Lab School. The program will ensure students have food to eat over the weekends.
Each Friday, students will get to bring a bag of meals home. The project has been in the works for a year. Millikin officials say it's great to see it become a reality.
It runs the rest of the school year. Organizers encourage community members to make donations to keep the program going.
