BKO Hunger Enters the Ring for a Third Round

Posted on June 17, 2015 by United Way of Bucks County.

On June 20, 2014, as the sun was rising over sleepy Doylestown, volunteers were beginning to fill the Moumgis Auditorium at Delaware Valley University for a unique experience that only happens once a year.

By the time the sun was fully risen, the auditorium was filled with hundreds of people, clustered around tables in assembly lines to prepare thousands of meals for local food pantries. These volunteers were all a part of Bucks Knocks Out Hunger, a hunger-fighting initiative to raise awareness of food insecurity in Bucks County, culminating in a meal packing event each summer. At the end of the day, they had packed over 100,000 shelf stable meals for Bucks County pantries.

This year, Bucks Knocks Out Hunger will be held on July 24, once again at DelVal in Moumgis Auditorium (located in the Student Center).
