CountryDate: Committed to Service volunteers pack 20,350 meals

More than 150 Country Day volunteers of all ages gathered Saturday to pack 20,350 meals in less than two hours for world hunger relief. The packing event, CountryDate: Committed to Service, was held on the Dining Terrace.

CCDS collaborated with the Stop Hunger Now organization to pack nutrient-rich meals for schools or institutions serving undernourished students across the globe.

Stop Hunger Now, through its mobile operation, delivered the ingredients and supplies from Indianapolis. Volunteers set up and dismantled packaging stations and equipment, filled bins with raw ingredients, scooped ingredients into meal bags, weighed and sealed the bags, boxed and stacked them on pallets, and loaded the pallets and equipment onto a truck.

Volunteers stayed motivated with a gong sounding as packing milestones were reached. Perfect Day DJs provided music that also fired up the crowd. After the event, volunteers were invited to try samples of a cooked meal.

According to Stop Hunger Now's website, the assembly process combines rice, soy, dehydrated vegetables and a packet containing 23 essential vitamins and minerals into small meal packages. The food is stored easily, transported quickly and has a shelf-life of two years.

Established in 1998, Stop Hunger Now has provided more than 225 million meals in 74 countries. Based in Raleigh, North Carolina, the organization operates throughout the U.S. and through affiliates in developing countries.

CountryDate: Committed to Service was the second of three events to demonstrate commitment to the school. The final event, CountryDate: Committed to the Future, will be held Saturday, March 4, at the Renaissance Hotel in downtown Cincinnati.

CountryDate: Committed to Service

NOTICE: Event location has been changed to the Dining Terrace!!

Dear Cincinnati Country Day Community,

As you know, CountryDate is expanding to three events with one common goal: show our commitment to Country Day by being Committed to Community, Committed to Service, and Committed to Future.

It's time for our second event, Committed to Service, an event for the entire family. On Saturday, January 7, CCDS is collaborating with Stop Hunger Now to pack nutrient-rich meals that will be shipped to more than 16 impoverished countries. In under two hours, a group of 100-150 volunteers can pack 20,000+ meals. The meals will be sent to schools and institutions that promote education, encourage school attendance, address gender inequalities, and stimulate economic growth.

Our children model what we do. How we invest our time and resources shapes their values. Let's show them how giving back can be life-changing for others. I hope to see you there; it will be a great time!
