Food for Others Power Pack Event
CC Pace employees came together to for a food packing event to support the efforts of Food for Others Power Pack Program. The Power Pack Program provides food packs for elementary school kids in Northern Virginia as a safety net to ensure that they have enough to eat over the weekend. This is a way to provide a healthy balanced meal for children who are either eating unbalanced meals, or perhaps adults who are skipping meals so their children can eat.
CC Pace purchased all the supplies needed for this event and our employees worked together to assemble the packages. This effort tested our “production line” skills and although it started out a little rocky, it ended great and we were able to get all the food packed and ready for distribution by Food for Others. In total we produced 288 meals, which will help to feed 48 children.
