Meal Packing

Long Island Lutheran hosted its first annual Meal Packing Event in 2011. Every year, over the course of three days, students, faculty and staff, along with the help of local schools, community groups and our association congregations pack about 150,000 meals for Long Island food pantries, the Andrew Grene School in Haiti and other countries with food insecurity.

Students receive much more than they give by participating in projects such as these, and at LuHi we aim to offer students not only excellent academic and social experiences but also with service-learning experiences that will shape them into responsible global citizens.

In March 2024, over 600 volunteers, including our entire student body, faculty, and staff, packed over 145,000 meals to be delivered to Island Harvest, the Long Island Council of Churches, and local pantries. These meals will help our neighbors on Long Island struggling with food insecurity. We are happy to say that we have packed over 3.7 million meals since 2011.

Last year, I had the pleasure of participating in LuHi’s Meal Packing Event for the first time. During this time, I learned how to work with others I may not have even known before to achieve a common goal—to provide meals to families less fortunate than us and to do our part to make a difference in the lives of others. LuHi may be a small school, but what we lack in size, we more than make up for with our faith and passion for serving” – Stella ’23
