SALINA – The Salina Area United Way will be hosting a Macaroni & Cheese Meal Packaging Project on Friday, November 3rd. The event will be held at The Masonic Center, 336 S. Santa Fe. There will be two shifts, 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. and/or 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.
The latest estimates show that 16% of the population of Saline County lives at or below the poverty level. Often hunger is “invisible” in our community, and because hunger is directly related to our goals in Health, Education, and Financial Stability, we are working hard to call attention to the issue.
We will be working with Outreach, Inc. to host our event. We will be packaging 50,000 macaroni and cheese meals that will be immediately distributed to the Salina community, including the food bank, homeless and domestic violence shelters, church food pantries, and community corrections.
Show your team spirit by wearing your ‘Small Acts – Big Impact’ t-shirt. Shirts may be purchased for $10 each or 5 for $50 and get the 6th one free. To purchase, call the Salina Area United Way office at 785-827-1312.
