Highland Campus Students Pack Meal Kits for Area Familiespublished August 11, 2022
On May 4, over 50 HCC students and additional staff packaged meal kits at the Clifford Hawk Agriculture Facility at Highland Community College in Highland. A total of 350 meal kits were assembled equaling almost 2000 servings of food for families in need. HCC partnered with the Kansas Farm Bureau (KFB) for the community service event.
Dr. Eric Ingmire, HCC Vice President of Student Services said, “The event was a huge success. Our students did an outstanding job of packaging meals and had a great time doing it in the process. The only way we were able to have such a successful event was because of our partnership with the Kansas Farm Bureau of Doniphan County. They provided the packaging meal kit materials and leadership in coordinating the stations.”
An assembly line was created with stations for adding the food into pouches, another for weighing the contents (it had to be very precise the amount of food in each package), labeling the package, and sealing each one. Then they were placed in boxes for transport to their final location.
Thank you to the Kansas Farm Bureau and the students and staff of Highland Community College for your work.
