Week, a group of dedicated students from the office of Student Life at Lone Star College-Montgomery are hosting a meal-packaging community service event on Monday, November 16, at 1 p.m. in the Commons Building (building B).
This event is in addition to the current campus-wide food drive that will support the college’s on-campus food pantry. The food drive is running through Friday, November 20.
The office of Student Life is partnering with Stop Hunger Now to provide students, faculty and staff the opportunity to make a difference and bring awareness to those less fortunate.
Meal-packaging events such as this are the heart of Stop Hunger Now’s work as a non-profit organization seeking to end worldwide hunger. These events are a great way to educate volunteers about global hunger and inspire them to get more involved in fighting it.
Volunteers will set up and take down packaging stations and equipment, fill bins with raw ingredients, scoop ingredients into meal bags, weigh and seal the bags, box and stack them, and load them onto trucks for disbursement.
The event also gives volunteers hands-on experience in leadership development, team building, relationship building, creative problem-solving and goal-setting achievement.
