Key Club Helps the Hungry

On Saturday October, 25 the LHS Key Club worked hard for an organization called Kids Against Hunger which packages and sends food to families both in underserved communities in the United States, as well as around the world. The club worked on putting together macaroni and cheese meals in an assembly line to be as efficient as possible.

“We were assigned to tables and each person had a different job, some poured the macaroni into bags then the next would weigh them and the next would seal them…we packed something around 20,000 I think…it was a really good experience” said junior Holly Brettell.

The LHS key club has always had an excellent reputation for excellent community service and this was no exception as the total count of packaged meals was 23,000. Each bag of macaroni and cheese had the protein and vitamins necessary to make six meals, providing a great source of nutrition for those who receive them.

“We had about twenty Key Clubbers show up to help and it looked like they were having a good time doing it,” said senior and club president Jackie Rivas.

This is the second year for the club working with this organization which has given members the opportunity to make a difference not only in the Littleton community, but to have a positive impact on a national and world scale.

“it’s is always nice to go out of the school to do interactive serve work,” said Rivas.

With the approaching holiday season, key club has much to look forward to and will continue to positively represent LHS and help those in need.
