Families in the South Lyon area and internationally will get help with food stability, thanks to the efforts of local volunteers.

Members of the South Lyon Kiwanis Club recently worked with Kids Against Hunger to package 10,000 meals. More than 50 volunteers of all ages joined club members in packaging the meals to be divided among South Lyon's backpack program. Puerto Rico and international donations.

Kids Against Hunger is a nonprofit humanitarian organization with a mission to provide fully nutritious food to impoverished children and families around the world and around the corner. The goal of the organization is for the meals to provide a stable nutritional base from which recipient families can move their families from starvation or food insecurity to self-sufficiency.

Along with club members, those involved with the packaging included students from both South Lyon high schools, including their Key Clubs and National Honor Societies, along with the Cub Scouts and community members who just wanted to give their time.

Each bag is enough to feed six adults. For more information, contact Chris Sarkella, Kiwanis Club president, at 248-755-8165 or go to https://kidsagainsthunger.org.
