Terps Against Hunger hosts meal-packing events in the DC metro area.
- We fight hunger: We bring together volunteers to package meals.
- We are local: All of our meals stay local to strengthen our communities.
- We empower future leaders: We’re an entirely student-run organization at the University of Maryland.
- We educate volunteers about hunger: Our participants gain a better understanding of food insecurity.
That’s why we were so excited about this event. It is an event with some energy, something we can get our hands on and do across traditions
Rev. Brett Pinder
I like that Maryland had these events, I definitely feel like I’m a part of something. It’s just great to see the whole UMD community coming out just to help
The group is called Terps Against Hunger, but in reality all of us today are all Terps against hunger. It’s about the campus community coming together to not only be in each other’s company, but to serve the better good of the people who live around us
Dr. Marsha Guencler-Stevens
I liked that they put such an effort into making a meal that was the most possible advantage with the least possible cost. It was clear that they actually wanted to do something real
We do rely heavily on the support of the community, which is why food drives are so important. We can't do it alone, so we are so grateful for Terps Against Hunger
