Springfield HS students help pack meals for children in South Africa

“I feel good that I am helping people who are less fortunate. This will be my third year and every time I do it I feel good, ”said Senior Carissa Bavis. “I enjoy it and it’s for a good cause too.”

This is the sixth year of the LNI groups running this project. Rosenberg said they delivered 2.5 million meals to Lesotho in the first five years.

Rosenberg said the goal on Thursday is to pack about 30,000 meals.

“We have 25 partners in Lesotho who provide around 3,000 children with food every day. I’ve been on all but two of the partner sites and I’ve been on them separately, so I saw the difference in the kids. Not just physical growth, but they are much more conscious, much more vigilant. The children are doing better now in preschool and so on, because they have the food they need for energy, but can also concentrate so they can learn, ”said Rosenberg.
