Beloit school students package 285,000 meals for those in need

News

Beloit Memorial High School hosted the largest, one-day volunteer project in the history of the school district on Friday, packaging more than 285,000 meals for hungry people in Guatemala.

The school partnered with the organization Kids Against Hunger and employed student volunteers from Beloit and other surrounding schools.

National Honor Society students helped organize the event, and say they learned important life skills along the way.

“The kids actually go out and write the grants. They go out and do public presentations. They go to churches. They go to various organizations to raise the funds and they also gathered together all the volunteers,” said John Wong, the President of Kids Against Hunger.

In ten years, Kids Against Hunger have packaged over 5 million meals to feed the needy.
