Big Bend Community College students assemble and donate sack lunches to Serve Moses Lake

TRiO Upward Bound Students

MOSES LAKE – It’s difficult to fathom that food is hard to come by, but it’s a reality for many in Grant County.

That’s why students in Big Bend Community College’s TriO Upward Bound Program took the liberty of assembling 50 sack lunches for those in need.

The sack lunch project was an acknowledgement to National TRiO Day. TRiO Day is celebrated across America each February to generate awareness about the importance of educational opportunities for low-income and/or first-generation students.

Students made sack lunches comprised of a sandwich, chips, fruit, bottled water and a handwritten inspirational message. Sack lunches will be distributed to Serve Moses Lake. Serve Moses Lake is a Christian-based non-profit that serves as a clearinghouse for the less fortunate who are in need of resources. Last year, Serve Moses Lake distributed over 6,411 lunches.
