RIT students preparing 20,000 meals for community in need
Henrietta, N.Y. (WHAM) - Tuesday was a day of giving at RIT.
Approximately 150 students spent the day preparing 20,000 healthy meals for people in the greater Rochester community.
It is part of their Giving Tuesday Hunger Project, which is typically held on the Tuesday after Black Friday.
"It means a lot to me to help other people and give back to the community because I'm very privileged and grateful for what I have and just want to help others who don't have as much," said Alyssa Christner, one of the volunteers. "I think we're all here for the same reasons: just give back to those in need."
Of those 20,000 meals, 18,000 will be donated to Foodlink. The other 2,000 will go to RIT's foodsharing program.
