Polk County High School students participated in a Rise Against Hunger meal packing event this week. Students in the school’s HOSA club planned the event to allow fellow students an opportunity to assembly-line package highly nutritious dehydrated meals comprised of rice, soy, vegetables, and 23 essential vitamins and minerals. Rise Against Hunger designed the meal packing events to give dedicated groups an opportunity to participate in a hands-on international hunger relief program. The event also gave the students hands-on experience in leadership development, team-building, relationship-building, creative problem-solving, and goal-setting and achievement. The PCHS HOSA club received a grant for the Rotary Club of Tryon Foundation to help fund this event.
