FIU’s Women’s Basketball Volunteers at Feeding South Florida

MIAMI (July 2, 2015) – The women’s basketball team spent last weekend volunteering with Feeding South Florida, sorting and packing food for the hungry. The Panthers, amongst 120 other volunteers, broke a record, producing 61,042 pounds of food in an hour and a half which is equivalent to about 50,000 meals.

“Our community service experience was great,” said newcomer and incoming junior Soraya Page. “Not only did we do our part to help the community, but we also had fun while we were at it. We broke a record that day, and it was a nice way to get familiar with my new teammates.”

Feeding South Florida (FSF) is one of 202 food banks comprising the Feeding America network nationwide. We are the leading domestic hunger relief organization in South Florida, serving Palm Beach, Broward, Miami-Dade, and Monroe Counties through a network of nonprofit partner agencies, including soup kitchens, food pantries, homeless shelters, group homes, and other emergency food service programs.
