Deadline: 

If you are looking for a way to celebrate Thanksgiving by giving service, Ohio State University’s College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences wants to hear from you.

The college is sponsoring a Stop Hunger Now meal-packaging event on the Monday before Thanksgiving, Nov. 24, from 4-7 p.m. It takes place at the Nationwide and Ohio Farm Bureau 4-H Center at 2201 Fred Taylor Drive. Groups, individuals, and families are all invited to volunteer and donate.

“Stop Hunger Now reaches millions of people in 65 countries every year,” said Chris Delisio, chief advancement officer for the college. “Participating in our effort will make a real difference in people’s lives. A large percentage of the meals go to school feeding programs, early childhood development programs and orphanages.”

The college’s event is being sponsored by Buckeyes Against Hunger.

Stop Hunger Now launched in 1998. Its mission is “To end hunger in our lifetime by providing food and life-saving aid to the world’s most vulnerable and by creating a global commitment to mobilize the necessary resources.”

The college is seeking to pack 75,000 meals and raise $21,750. To donate or to register to pack meals, go to: go.osu.edu/cfaesstophunger.
