“I’m very very proud of everything we accomplished here, coming together as a community and we wouldn’t have been able to help as many people as we’re going to with all of this food without just this group effort,” Meals said.

Harrisburg Academy faculty and staff joined the cause, by offering personal vehicles to help deliver the donations to the food bank.
