A slightly understaffed crew of 15 Metropolitan State University colleagues worked overtime to prepare and package the equivalent of nearly 11,000 meals destined for low-income senior citizens in Minnesota.

It proved to be an engaging, team-building activity that brought together people who do not typically work together. Based on this experience, plans are to schedule another shift during spring semester with a full crew. The goal will be to prepare and package 15,000 meals. Keep an eye out if you’re interested in joining the production crew.
