Laureen Walter and Anna Woidyla, two high school students from Osakis, are on a mission to help those with food insecurities.
As part of their Family, Career, Community Leaders of America Chapter Service Project, the two hosted yet another event. This time it was a Harvest Pack event. The two have also hosted a food drive and Backpack Attack event.
The Harvest Pack event took place on Friday, Jan. 28. Harvest Pack is a nonprofit organization that Walter and Woidyla teamed up with. The meals that were packaged together will be shipped to Haiti.
Walter said there were about 90 volunteers working the event and included volunteers from FCCLA, Student Council and the Senior Class of 2022.
“We packed 16,416 meals, which will feed 45 kids for a year,” she said, adding that they put together an assembly line to fill the bags.

The bags of food included rice, soy, dried vegetables and a vitamin powder. The sealed bags were placed in a box, which will then be shipped to Haiti.
The Harvest Pack event was the last event of the FCCLA students’ Chapter Service Project.
“We will be going to the State FCCLA Convention to present our project April 7-8,” said Walter. “This was the global aspect of our project. Our FCCLA chapter worked extra hard to set up and clean up the event.”
