Bethany Loves Bloomington
Meal Packing Event
October 13, 2017
Bethany Loves Bloomington is an annual meal-packing event that provides nutrient-rich food for families visiting Bloomington area food shelves. Students are sponsored by donors and raise funds for educational programs at Bethany Academy. It’s part school fundraiser, part service project, and a whole lot of fun!
On October 13, 2017 each Bethany Academy student will strive to reach this year’s goal of packing 50,000 meals! The packed meals will then be distributed to those who need it most by our partners, Harvest Pack and Good in the ‘Hood, two local food aid organizations working to end hunger.
