East Catholic High School students, faculty and staff help to prepare more than 45,000 nutritious meal packets for shipment to Uganda as part of the “Feeding Children Everywhere” campaign.
The school community weighed, bagged and packaged lentils, rice, spices and dehydrated fruit.
The initiative was brought to East Catholic by student Grace Mazzarella, who took part in the project at her church. She thought that the program would have more impact at East Catholic, where all students could participate.
Students raised the funds to purchase the food needed for the packets. (Photo submitted)
