InterFaith Alliance and #MackGivesBack
We are very proud of our students in the InterFaith Alliance of Merrimack College who helped pack 50,000 meals for food insecure children for #MackGivesBack. They joined the Boston Interfatih Campus Coalition and Humanist Community of Harvard on November 24th for the 4th Annual Interfaith Thanksgiving Meal Packing Event, and added 42 hours to the #MackGivesBack project total.
According to Chris Stedman, Assistant Humanist Chaplain at Harvard, “Our interfaith meal packing event on Sunday was the largest meal packing that has ever occurred in Middlesex County, which also happens to be the county with the highest levels of food insecurity in all of New England. During our efforts on Sunday, we packed Kids Care’s 4 millionth meal — and then some. And with this, our fourth meal packing event, we exceeded 120,000 meals packed at our annual interfaith meal packing events. That’s 120,000 children fed, all because religious and nonreligious people came together to help those in need.”
