Students Volunteer for the Pack Shack

Northwest Arkansas provides many opportunities for involvement and volunteering with local food groups.  Three of our current LL.M. students—Kathryn Smith, Erin Shirl, and Lauren Bernadett—volunteered their Friday afternoon to help pack over 25,000 healthy meals for NWA vs Hunger

NWA vs Hunger was organized by the Pack Shack, a group that provides food, hygiene items, and personal items to Northwest Arkansans in need.  The goal of NWA vs Hunger is to pack 500,000 healthy meals, collect 20,000 pounds of food drive items, and raise $5,000 for fresh produce. 

Our students volunteered on the assembly line and combined the ingredients in bagged meals.  Each bagged meal included dehydrated vegetables, dried soy and rice, and vitamin supplements.  The experience was fun and, of course, very rewarding.

Events such as this help provide needy individuals and families with direct access to food.  Our students realize that their careers can impact food policies and achieve long-term food access goals on both local and national scales, but direct access to food can provide more immediate support.
