Imagine if every kindergartener and three-fourths of the first graders at Miller-Driscoll School had nothing to eat. Not today, not tomorrow.
That’s how many children will have something to eat every day for a year thanks to the efforts of 750 people who gathered Oct. 24, at WEPCO, for Wi-ACT’s annual meal packaging marathon. Their efforts produced 165,024 meals for hungry children around the world, representing by far the largest packaging event in the Northeast for the nonprofit Stop Hunger Now. This year’s output is up from 160,000 meals last year.
