Help for the Hungry 

Community: Fighting local and global hunger

Last fall, more than 700 Vermonters packed up nine-and-a-half tons of food for hungry children in Ghana. When the volunteers completed their two-hour shifts, they asked, "Is that it? Can we do more?" recalls Fred Kenney, president of local nonprofit With Love From Vermont. So the donation goals have doubled for this year's Feed My Starving Children MobilePack, held in Essex and Bristol in October. Raising awareness about local and global hunger, the event aims to send 272,000 meals around the world and 1500 pounds of nonperishable food to the Vermont FoodBank. Want to get your family involved? Register online to volunteer. "A family can work together side by side packing the food," says Kenney. "It's a great event."

Feed My Starving Children MobilePack: Friday, October 18, and Saturday, October 19, at Albert D. Lawton Intermediate School in Essex and Mount Abraham Union High School in Bristol. Visit withlovefromvermont.com for more information.
