Western Fraternal Life again partnered with the charity Kids Against Hunger for a service project at the conclusion of the Convention on Friday afternoon. After months of fundraising, our lodges and individual members donated approximately $7,250 to pay for the supplies to make the meals.

Beforehand, the Young Member Summit helped set up for the event. Throughout the service project, they helped pass out hair nets, aprons, gloves, and hauled rice, protein powder, and vegetable mix. Over 242 members and guests from 55 lodges around the country packed 45,360 meals in three hours. Divided into three groups, volunteers took 45 minutes each to package the meals to feed hungry children in the Green Bay area and around the world.

John Wong, representative from Kids Against Hunger, explained the set up and what needed to be done before each group began. He gave instructions on how to pack the bags of food to make sure they shipped properly. Since it was our second year participating, John let us get started and helped fill in wherever he could.

After the event, 10% of the food was donated to a local food pantry in Green Bay, WI. Reaction for this event is always tremendously positive, and many members do their own meal packing events back home.

Thank you to the donors, volunteers, and participants who made this event possible!
