The Dominican College community packaged 10,000 macaroni and cheese meals for the hungry by partnering with The Outreach Program, Inc. during Founders Week. More than 130 students, faculty, administrators, and staff volunteered on the assembly lines that were set up in the Lawrence Room of Rosary Hall on September 27, 2019.
The Outreach Program Regional Manager Ted Swartwood said Dominican College’s assistance is appreciated, “Hunger is a real issue wherever you go and the meals will go to people who really need them. One in five people in the greater Rockland County area do not know where their next meal is coming from. These meals will help.”
About 9,000 meals were delivered to People to People for distribution to local families and the remainder are being kept in the College food pantry for students. The Outreach Program is a nonprofit organization focused on providing safe water, food, medical care, and education to children and those in need at home and abroad.
