Connecticut sheet metal workers help prepare 10,000 meals for kids

The United Labor Agency and Feeding Hungry Children arrived at Sheet Metal Workers Local #40’s training center with an empty truck. By the end of the event, the truck was full. During one hour, 10,000 meals were packaged by 36 people on three assembly lines. Apprentices Daniel Meyer, Christopher Scott, Kevin Angell, Kevin Nelson, William Garthwaite, Matheau Willette, Oleg Afendulov, Robert Brown, Cullen Bridgers and Jonathan Medina, along with Jason Sherman, executive board member, helped with the event. Each meal consisted of rice, lentils, vegetables and Himalayan salt, and each ingredient was put into a plastic bag, weighed and heat sealed. Each bag provides six child-sized meals. The majority of the meals went to children in Waterbury, Hartford and New Britain in Connecticut who only eat while at school. The meals packaged by the volunteers at Local #40 bridge the night, weekend and vacation gaps when nutritious food isn’t available.
