Lending a hand

Monday, November 24, 2014

Students, faculty and staff packed meals for people in Liberia at the Kids Fighting Hunger of Central Minnesota community food-packing event Nov. 22 at River’s Edge Convention Center, St. Cloud.

The food will aid workers and individuals being quarantined due to the Ebola outbreak in that west African nation.

About 150 students and about 15 faculty and staff volunteered for the effort, some participating with community groups and others bringing family members along.

They joined 700 volunteers from the greater St. Cloud community who met the goal of packing 200,000 meals. The meals were packed during three two-hour shifts, and enough meals were packed to fill a shipping container. Each package contains rice, soy, goat cheese and a protein mix.
