Heritage Middle School 8th graders pack 31,100 meals

On Wednesday, Dec. 11 the 8th graders from Heritage Environmental-STEM Magnet Middle School worked with the nonprofit Harvest Pack to pack meals for families in need. Harvest Pack partners with volunteers throughout the U.S. to provide nutritionally rich food to help stock local food shelves. Harvest Pack received a Cities 97 Sampler grant to fund this project and Heritage 8th graders packed 31,104 meals in two hours! The meals will benefit families in Haiti and in the Twin Cities.
