FHSU to host fourth annual Swipe Out Hunger Event

Fort Hays State University's Global Leadership Project and Numana Inc. will host the fourth annual Swipe Out Hunger event from 12 to 2 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 18, in the university's Forsyth Library to help those in need on a global scale. The goal is to package 50,000.

Numana is an international hunger relief organization based in El Dorado. Numana creates a SWIPE event, where students and community volunteers come together and impact thousands of people. In an assembly-line fashion, volunteers gather around tables and package rice, soy, freeze-dried pinto beans, and different blends of vitamins and minerals into packages. The packaged food is then weighed, sealed, boxed and prepared for shipment.

Swipe Out Hunger is a bulk food-packaging event among higher education institutions across the nation. Packaged meals will be sent to those in need nationally and in Africa.

The event is split into one-hour time slots. Volunteers can participate individually or as a team.
