NSBA volunteers take a quick pause as they package 10,000 nutrient-rich meal packets (each providing six meals) for shipment to the needy.
Bar Members Help ‘Stop Hunger Now’
The Stop Hunger Now initiative seeks to end world hunger by packaging these meals and sending them to the hungry in places like El Salvador and Haiti. During the Nebraska State Bar Association’s Annual Meeting in October, volunteers weighed, filled, sealed and prepared for delivery 10,000 meal packets. This was the second year for NSBA participation. In September, the Omaha Bar Association also packaged 10,000 meal packets. OBA Executive Director Dave Sommers said those meals have been distributed by Convoy of Hope in El Salvador. That means 120,000 meals for malnourished children and adults. “Thank you for stepping up,” he said. “You are making a positive difference in the world. Working together, the Nebraska legal community knows we can make a difference. Both organizations send a big thank-you to all their volunteers and encourage everyone to sign up for the next event.”
