DNHS KIN Club Food Packaging Project
The Do Something Del Norte KIN Club in conjunction with Friends & Family Community Connection is hosting a “Feed A Child, Save A Life” food packaging event on Friday, May 3rd from 3:30 – 5:30 p.m. at Del Norte High School. The club’s purpose is to engage students in community service and social action, with a focus on helping kids in need. Last year as over 500 student and community volunteers made 20,280 meals for kids in need. Approximately 6,000 of the meals were allocated for local distribution. The balance was sent to orphanages in Haiti and Tanzania. This year the goals remain the same. Each meal costs only 25¢ which covers the cost of the ingredients and shipping, and the student leaders are currently raising the required funds to package these special formulated meals. Volunteers will work in an assembly-line fashion adding rice, soy, vitamins, minerals and chicken/vegetable flavorings, all with the intent that children in San Diego and around the world will be provided with something warm and nutritious to eat. KIN Club is looking for local businesses and community groups to partner with this effort through sponsorship and volunteering. For more information contact dnhsKINclub@gmail.com.
