Led by University Chaplain the Reverend Nita Byrd, Falcons conducted a Stop the Hunger Now community service project in observance Veterans Day with the Christ Church Youth Ministry on November 11 in Emery Gymnasium. Within two hours, the nearly 60 participating individuals packaged 10,000 meals. Each package contained six meals. Following the community service project, the youth ministry joined the Falcons for a service of Holy Eucharist in the Saint Augustine’s University Chapel.
The Stop Hunger Now’s meal packaging program is a volunteer-based program that coordinates the streamlined packaging of highly nutritious dehydrated meals comprised of rice, soy, vegetables, flavoring and 21 essential vitamins and minerals. The program targets school feeding and transformational development programs. For more information about Stop Hunger Now, visit http://www.stophungernow.org.
