Operation HeartF.E.L.T. is designed to meet the needs of children suffering from food insecurity in Hernando County on weekends during the school year.
Operation Heart F.E.L.T.™ (Feeding Empty Little Tummies) is a non-profit organization whose mission is to provide nutritious meals to students and their siblings on weekends, holidays and extended school break periods. We believe that every child deserves the advantage good nutrition provides to physical, emotional and intellectual development.
There are children in Hernando County who rely on school breakfast and lunch during the week and go without food on the weekends. Food insecurity is a growing problem and interferes with a child’s ability to learn.
Operation Heart F.E.L.T. is a part of the Backpack Program designed to meet the needs of Hernando County’s hungry children during weekends and school vacations.
