WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - More than 100 Palm Beach Atlantic University students volunteered Saturday at a Feeding Children Everywhere event. The organization aims to curtail hunger around the world by mobilizing people to prepare meals for children.
The students gathered under a white tent near the Mahoney Gym. In an assembly line, they measured and poured rice, lentils, pink Himalayan salt and six dehydrated vegetables into bags. They boxed the bags in colorfully decorated cardboard boxes, as upbeat music pounded. Some danced to the beat and sang aloud.
The goal was to prepare 50,000 nutritious meals for children around the world. A pallet-worth of boxes will stay in Palm Beach County.
