Volunteers Help to Prevent Child Hunger

Team 100 volunteers recently delivered bags of groceries to students at Roosevelt Elementary School in an effort to prevent weekend hunger among needy families.

The group of 100 men have raised money for the Volunteer Center's Food for Kids program, which delivers food to students at high-need schools on Fridays.  The two groups work with the nonprofit Food Finders, which coordinates with food vendors, grocery stores, restaurants and caterers to distribute donated food.
