A Note From Friends...

RSVP to Middle School ISE Meal Packing Event – Monday, April 8th from 5 to 6:30 pm

 

Our next Inter School Exchange (ISE) Event is Meal Packing at Long Island Lutheran Middle & High School (LuHi) on Monday, April 8th at 5:00 pm.

 

LuHi sponsors this event in conjunction with "Meals from the Heart," and the goal is to assemble 300,000 meals to feed 500 individuals every day for a year. These meals are a nutritionally balanced rice or pasta mix including protein, vitamins and minerals and need only water to prepare. The majority of the food packets will be distributed to local food pantries on Long Island, with a portion delivered to the Andrew Grene School in Haiti to feed the entire student body for the year.

 

For additional information, please view the attached flyer or you may visit www.mealsfromtheheart.org.

 

The ISE student volunteers have been scheduled for a Meal Packing time slot on Monday, April 8th from 5:00pm to 6:30 pm. The fee is $20 (please note that this is a reduced rate for ISE participants) for the one and a half hour Meal Packing session. Checks may be made payable to "Long Island Lutheran." Be sure to mark "Meal Packing Project" on the check.

 

Children over the age of 10 can be dropped off at LuHi, which is located at 131 Brookville Road in Brookville and the event will take place in the Visscher Gymnasium.

 

If you would like for your child to participate, please respond directly to Emma at LuHi by email mealpacking@luhi.org prior to Friday, April 5th. Please specify that you are participating from Friends Academy on behalf of the ISE.
