Serving the Community: CVM Students Lead Stop Hunger Now Event

This past Saturday (Feb. 20) students at the NC State University College of Veterinary Medicine led an event for “Stop Hunger Now”, a Raleigh-based international relief agency program that prepares small, nutrition packed meals that are sent to undernourished communities, in efforts to eradicate world hunger and promote education.

 

Jessica Smith and Carly Dohse, third-year DVM students, organized some 60 volunteers that included CVM students, faculty, staff, family, and friends to package more 10,000 meals for the organization that has meal packing locations throughout the United States and six other countries. These fortified meals are nutrition-packed servings prepared for children and adults in developing countries. Stop Hunger Now packaged over 2.3 million meals in 2015.
