Thank you for making CFAES’s Stop Hunger Now event a big success

Heartfelt thanks are in order to the nearly 350 volunteers and donors who hurried, hauled and helped during CFAES’s Stop Hunger Now meal-packaging event at the Nationwide and Ohio Farm Bureau 4-H Center Nov. 24.

Volunteers — most of whom were students, faculty and staff — packed 75,000 meals in less than three hours. The meals will help feed the hungry across the globe. The event was co-hosted by CFAES and the student organization Buckeyes Against Hunger

The biggest sponsor was the H.J. Heinz Company Foundation. The foundation underwrote the 75,000 meals as part of its Heinz Micronutrient Campaign (HMC).

In 2013, the HMC launched a new partnership with Stop Hunger Now, a Raleigh, North Carolina-based nonprofit whose mission is to alleviate hunger in developing nations around the world.—CFAES Office of Development
