Naperville North, Central and Neuqua Valley had their 7th Annual Food Fight, all for a good cause.
Students across all three schools volunteered their time to pack 140,000 meals, provided by Impact Lives and Food for Kids, to feed those affected by the recent earthquake in Nepal.
Each high protein meal has a serving size of six and includes rice, soy, chicken and vegetables.
Jared Prosapio who led the volunteer based effort, says that this experience has forced him to step outside of the box.
“It’s taught me to spend your time on more important things than yourself, I think it’s just given me an opportunity to just grow and learn and to also feed starving children while doing it,” said Prosapio, President of Food Fight.
Prosopio’s older brother, Jordon, created Food Fight in 2009 after being motivated by a church conference.
Since then, 1.3 million meals have been sent to places in need and participating schools have grown from two to five in the area. Meals that were packed this year will be sent to Nepal by summertime.
