24,192 meals packed in 6.5 hours with over 250 volunteers!
Perry Lutheran Home served as the host organization for a “Meals from the Heartland” event. This event took place on Wednesday, April 5 at Main Campus. Residents, tenants, staff, organizations, service clubs, students, and community members worked alongside one another to package meals. These meals feed undernourished people across the United States, including Iowa, and also in third world countries.
In addition to the meal-packing event, dementia simulations, “Music & Memory” demonstrations, and tours of the upcoming Inter-Generational Childcare project took place.
