For most Americans, the end of daylight saving time means an extra hour of shut-eye. But this Sunday, rather than sleeping in, hundreds of students at the University of Central (UCF) used the time to package healthy meals for hungry people at Pack to Attack.
Started in 2011 and hosted by UCF’s Panhellenic Council, Pack to Attack brings together students from various sororities, fraternities and university organizations. The results? A total of 594,112 meals for hungry children in Nicaragua, Zambia, Haiti and Central Florida.
“It’s a high-energy event that allows students to be the change while having fun with their friends,” said Patty Zorrilla, vice president of community involvement for UCF’s Panhellenic Council and former FCE intern.
