Physician Assistant Program seeks alumni for help with meal-packing

The Penn State Physician Assistant Program is looking for alumni and anyone else who is interested in helping fight world hunger. The program is gearing up for its annual meal-packing event for Stop Hunger Now, taking place this year at 2:30 p.m. on Nov. 15, at the University Conference Center.

Every year, students and others affiliated with the program raise money through a variety of methods, including bake sales and raffles, to purchase meal kits from Rise Against Hunger, where the food is sorted and packaged for individual distribution.

Founded in 1998, Rise Against Hunger aims to provide food and life-changing aid to the world’s most vulnerable populations. The organization has provided nearly 500 million meals since its founding.
