Sevatec Partners with Nourishment Now to Package Rice Meals for Local and International Communities
On Friday June 16th, Sevatec employees joined forces with Nourishment Now to package over 11,500 meals for distribution both in the US and abroad. This was Sevatec’s fourth time hosting a food packaging event with Nourishment Now (formerly Kids Against Hunger – DC Metro).
A portion of the meals packaged will stay local, donated to food shelves within the Metro area. The remainder of the packages will be sent overseas to the developing countries most in need.
Nourishment Now’s meals consist of rice, soy protein (facilitates movement and growth), vitamins & minerals (key to physical and mental development), and vegetable flavoring (for the taste!).
With three tables going almost non-stop, we were able to package 11,500 meals in under three hours! Even some of our employees children were able to help…with just a little extra clean up required.
We look forward to our next mission with Nourishment Now and plan on breaking through the 12,000 meal barrier in no time at all. To learn more about Nourishment Now and the impact they are making, please visit their website.
