Modern Woodmen of America will host an Outreach Inc. food-packaging event 12:30-3:30 p.m. Friday at the Modern Woodmen printing and shipping building, 2015 2nd Ave., Rock Island.|
Nearly 450 Modern Woodmen employees will participate in the event to provide 50,000 meals for River Bend Foodbank. Modern Woodmen will cover the cost of the ingredients and supplies to package the meal; each meal costs 25 cents.
Bags of macaroni and cheese will be packaged, sealed and boxed for distribution at River Bend Foodbank's mobile food pantry on Aug. 23, also sponsored by Modern Woodmen.
The event is one of many projects sponsored by Modern Woodmen as part of its summer-long campaign to Knock Out Hunger which culminates Sept. 20 with a 5K charity run, walk and kids' fun run in the District of Rock Island.
