FHSU to host fourth annual Swipe Out Hunger Event

10/13/14
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.
