TERP FAMILIES FIGHT HUNGER
Give your time and talent for the 4th annual Family Weekend community service event, sponsored by Terps Against Hunger (TAH). We are bringing together over 400 volunteers to package 100,000 meals for hungry children and families in the DC Metro area. The meals are packaged in an assembly line fashion, and this service event is great for volunteers of all ages (so younger siblings and family members can participate). It’s also perfect for middle school or high school students in need of service learning hours. TAH staff will sign verification forms at the event.
TAH is also asking that volunteers bring donations of canned food, which will be delivered to the UMD Campus Food Pantry. The Campus Pantry is committed to serving all students, faculty, and staff who struggle with food insecurity.
