Page Ten N/Warren Town and County News Thursday, June 13, 2013 Norwalk Middle School Volunteers for the Meals from the Heartland During the school year, Briley Sodergren, a 6th grader, asked Principal Beth Ward if the Norwalk Middle School could participate in volunteering to prepare meals from "Meals From the Heartland." As the year progressed, the plans were made with the local organization and Sodergren's wish came true. Tuesday May 28, all 6th and 7th graders helped to package over 15,700 packets of food in just two hours. The students enjoyed the activity and have already requested to do it again next year. When Sodergren was asked why it was so important to do this, she replied, "I wanted tohelp people that are going hungry in the world." This was an excellent opporttmity for students to understand the hunger issues that plague the world and know that they can help in a small way. Ms. Ward was very complimentary on the students, staff and volunteers from the organization. She said, "I loved seeing our students take an active role in helping out so many others less fortunate than us." Briley Sodergren, a 6th grader, was instrumental in organizing the Meals from the Heartland. This is the set up for the meals. They contain rice, soy protein, dried vegetables, vitamins and minerals. is a full commercial printer. *Flyers *Letterhead *Envelopes *Brochures *Magazines *Newsletters *Books, etc. Call for a free estimate!
