CFS Packaging 100,000 Meals for Rise Against Hunger
In celebration of Church Farm School’s Centennial year, the private boarding and day school for boys in Exton has committed to packaging 100,000 meals for Rise Against Hunger, which provides food and aid through its international partners. The packaging event will be held in the school’s Founder’s Pavilion on Saturday, February 3 from 9:30 a.m. – noon, where Church Farm School students, faculty and staff will work alongside church and community volunteers. In addition to Church Farm School and its Leadership Council, numerous area churches are supporting the event through financial donations to purchase the meals, and manpower to package them, including St. David’s Episcopal Church and St. Mary’s Episcopal Church in Wayne, Bryn Mawr’s Church of the Redeemer and St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Exton (where Church Farm School’s founder once served as rector). Episcopal Academy is also partnering with Church Farm School for the event.
"We have long been a school committed to service, and this effort is one where we can work alongside good friends from the community to support the international hunger crisis. When we began planning our Centennial year, we knew that a day of service would be an important way for us to give back, as we have received so much generosity from our own neighbors over the past 100 years,” says The Rev. Edmund K. Sherrill II, Head of School.
