Feed the Need 2018

Packing Party

Wednesday, Feb. 21, 2018

2-6 p.m.

Louis Lehrman Gymnasium

Academy families are invited to participate in Feed the Need's culminating event -- our Packing Party! This is an indoor event where our school community -- current families, faculty and staff, alumni, local leaders -- will hand pack 10,000 meals that will be distributed to the Central Pennsylvania Food Bank for local families and to children and orphans in Haiti. This event is an extraordinary opportunity for our students to not only raise funds for our school, but to be part of a significant give-back experience. Working together in this way, we will help our children develop a greater sense of gratitude and appreciation for what they have, and grow in sensitivity for those who have less.


For the event, the food packing area will be set up as an FDA food safety site. We will be packaging nutritionally balanced meals -- developed by dieticians at General Mills -- for malnourished children. Students of all ages will be working side-by-side with family, teachers, alumni, and local leaders as we give back together.  Bagging, packing, sealing, and decorating... there is a job for everyone!


We encourage you to work with your children to set up your fundraising page and begin reaching out to your family and friends for their support. Text SPARTAN to 71777 or sign up online and get started today!

About Feed the Need

This winter, our school will host a very special event called Feed the Need. This school-wide fundraiser will not only help Harrisburg Academy raise funds for technology, arts/music, scholarships, athletics, faculty, and innovation, but a portion of the funds we raise will go toward providing healthy meals for hungry children in our community and abroad. Our students will personally make a difference as they pack, seal, and box 10,000 meals for hungry children (5,000 meals will go to the Central PA Food Bank). Your support will powerfully impact our school while also providing for children in need!
