Kids work to defeat hunger by packing meals

Vintage Hills students packaged 13,000 food kits

Vintage Hills Elementary students recently packaged about 13,000 meals to send to hungry families.

Students from second to fifth grade participated in the charitable event on Monday. Students donned hair nets and took turns at food-preparation stations to assemble ready-to-ship food kits.

Upon arrival to locations such as Haiti, India and Colombia, families are able to boil the entire packet of rice, vegetables and vitamins to have a filling, nutritional meal. The meals are distributed to humanitarian organizations worldwide through Kids Against Hunger, a national non-profit that works with schools to arrange these food-packaging events.

Pleasanton schools have long worked with Kids Against Hunger. The Kids Against Hunger Bay Area satellite group recently held a food-packaging event at Alisal Elementary, where schoolchildren packed 11,708 meals.
