Valley Forge Middle School BC partners with student council and PTO

Students of Valley Forge Middle School packaged 10,000 meals for their contribution to the national campaign of Stop Hunger Now.

“Our students had a fantastic time,” said Andrew Mullen, the school’s sixth-grade counselor and project organizer. “They felt a great sense of accomplishment and pride when all of the meals were finally packed.”

According to Mullen, the middle-schoolers spent two hours Thursday after school putting together high-protein, dehydrated meals that will be used across the globe to aid children and families in crisis relief efforts, orphanages and school feeding programs in developing countries.

The program became a collaborative effort involving the school’s Builders Club, student council and Parent Teacher Organization, Mullen said. The students involved through the school’s guidance department were asked to donate a minimum of $15 each to cover the cost of the meals. Together, the group raised more than $3,000.
