We repacked 13,000 lb of food at Food Lifeline
Thank you to the Hokies who joined us for our annual day of service! Embodying Ut Prosim, we helped sort and pack food at Food Lifeline, a nonprofit food distribution center that provides nutritious food to hungry, low-income people. We had a great time and plan to do this again in the future. See photos on our website here.
