Brookwood students help feed hungry children

THOMASVILLE — On Valentine’s Day, Brookwood Middle School students participated in Kids Against Hunger to provide food to developing and disaster-stricken countries.

 For two hours, 6th-, 7th- and 8th-grade students donned hairnets and plastic gloves to package, label and box dehydrated meals. They succeeded in packaging 6,664 meals to ship to hungry communities around the world.

 The humanitarian food-aid organization Kids Against Hunger aims to eradicate world hunger by packaging a highly nutritious, vitamin-fortified soy-rice casserole at numerous locations in the United States and Canada. Those meals are distributed to starving children and their families in more than 60 countries through partnerships with humanitarian organizations worldwide.
