Cascade Ridge students pack 5,456 meals

Cascade Ridge Elementary School students

By working with the nonprofit organization Children of the Nations, 110 fifth-grade students at Cascade Ridge Elementary School packed 5,456 meals for children overseas April 19.

Each meal included a dehydrated vegetable mix, a vegetarian flavoring with added vitamins and minerals, and rice and lentils.

The meals will go to Sierra Leone, Malawi, Haiti or the Dominican Republic.

For the third year, Cascade Ridge fifth-graders learned about common foods eaten in other countries, such as lentils and rice. Students also did household chores to raise money for the nonprofit, bringing in $1,360 that will help transport the food.
