Thousands of kids in the Miami Valley rely on school lunches for their meals during the week.
So when the weekend comes, many of them go hungry.
In this week's Cool Schools, Hilary Zalla meets a group of students from Five Points Elementary School in Springboro, who are now secret heroes to many kids.
They're only 8 years old, about 4 feet tall, and in the 3rd grade...
But what they are accomplishing is by no means small...
"You know how you have food every day. Theres like kids that dont have it and are hungry over the weekend" said Jacob Hams.
"I feel sad for them because most of their parents do work but just dont get enough food for them" said Hannah Johnson.
So, they made a video...
They call themselves Springboro's Hunger Heroes...the 5 minute video they shot, wrote, and edited ALL by themselves...explains their cause.
"Its spreading the word about the backpacks so other people can give money to help," said Amanda Schlise.
They're asking you for just 3 dollars to sponsor a backpack filled with enough food for a child over the weekend.
The Springboro Community Assistance Center started the backpack program, but is only able to help around 30 children. When the students from Five Points Elementary School found out almost 400 kids in Springboro go hungry over the weekend, they made the video, got tons of sponsors and have already helped more than 30 more kids.
