4-H Families Package 10,000 Meals for Local Food Pantries
October 18, 2017
Teamwork was key in order to reach the goal of packaging 10,000 meals for food
pantries in Macoupin County. 4-H members and their families gathered together on
Saturday, September 30 to join in the fight against hunger. Participants worked in an
assembly-line fashion to package the ingredients of rice, soy protein and vitamin mix to
make a packaged meal for those in need. Macoupin County 4-H partnered with Illini Fighting Hunger to make this event a success.
