USF Students Pack Meals For Hungry



Bookmark and Share

The Stewart Center on the University of Sioux Falls campus was a little busier than usual this Thursday afternoon.

Throughout the day, students had the opportunity to feed hungry children all over the world. They formed assembly lines, packing meal combinations of soy protein, vegetable mixtures.

The children who will receive these meals are not only hungry, but severely malnourished. These meals provide the nutrition they need for an extended period of time. The typical every day meal we would eat would not only last a shorter amount of time. They could possibly make them sicker due to the damage already done to their bodies.

"Students are running through four different shifts: 1:00, 3:30, 6:00, and 7:00. They are packing. 'Feed My Starving Children' has a great system and so it is easy to teach people. Therefore, you can get a lot of meals packed in a short amount of time," says Kelli Bones, a Junior Class Student Senator with USF's student government.

By the end of the day, they managed to pack around 100,000 meals, each costing only 22 cents.

'Feed My Starving Children' is a non-profit Christian organization based out of Minnesota.
