ENC students hope to help hungry elementary schoolers
Quincy, Massachussetts

(Patriot Ledger, March 26) Students at Eastern Nazarene College are organizing a "buddy bag" program to help address the problem of childhood hunger. And they're starting with elementary school children in Quincy. 

Eastern Nazarene sophomore Nathaniel Nutter said being hungry "can be stressful" for children, and the Eastern Nazarene students are "raising awareness of what's going on."

Nutter said the class plans to fill the bags with fruit and other food items.

"We don't have the bags yet. It's a semester-long (project). If all goes well, the delivery will be in early April."

The bags — perhaps 350 of them — are destined to go to Quincy's Snug Harbor Elementary School.
