Almost six tons of food were unpacked, shuffled, sorted and repacked by Brookhaven College students and employees this past weekend at the North Texas Food Bank. More than 60 people supported the second-annual All-College Service Project at the food bank on Oct. 15.
Student government and the volleyball team showed their support as groups, but there also were a number of individual students and employees who came to volunteer three hours of their time that Saturday. The group unpacked pallets and repacked hundreds of boxes of food for area families. All told, there were 10,235 meals prepared by the college’s volunteers.
Once the hours volunteered are calculated, the NTFB will credit the hours to a local agency that can use the credit to purchase food items for local distribution.
