On Saturday, November 11th from 9-11 a.m. more than 150 students came to Challenger Middle School to fight hunger. Sponsored by Kiwanis of Cape Coral and Challenger Middle School Caspian team raised $2,700 to partner up with Meals of Hope to pack 10,386 meals to help fight hunger in Lee County. There was 12 steps that were assigned to the students to perform to back a dried spaghetti dinner that fed 6 people. It was a beautiful morning to see so many young energetic students to come out on a Saturday to help feed people that are less fortunate then them!
The Mission of Meals of Hope is “Communities coming together to end hunger!” Meals of Hope began as a food packing organization with a priority on keeping the food packed within the United States. We developed five meals specifically designed for the American palate and added vitamins, minerals and proteins to supplement an unbalanced diet. Most of our packed meals are donated to the Feeding America Food Bank Network. More than 15,000 volunteers and six full-time staff members assist Meals of Hope in achieving its Mission.
