Packing Meals Brings Faiths Together

On Sunday, November 13, 2016, UniLu members joined Harvard students of different faiths—Christian, Muslim, Jewish, Buddhist, Sikh, and Zoroastrian—for the Harvard Chaplains‘ annual Interfaith Meal Packing Event. The group packed 25,000 meals for food-insecure residents of local communities, which were then distributed to local charities through The Outreach Program. UniLu members also contributed more than $1,000 toward the cost of the meals.
