HU, Central PA Food Bank team up to ensure students stay well fed

The COVID-19 outbreak has had many consequences you may not have thought about.

For instance, some college students, including about 150 students attending Harrisburg University, did not or could not return home when their schools closed and so are still staying on campus in their residence halls.

On Monday, the Central Pennsylvania Food Bank brought food to HU for those resident students.

Once the food arrived in early afternoon, the HU student services team, members of the eSports team and staff helped load the food into the student union building in Whitaker Center. The team then put together food boxes for the students who remained on campus. They, like other HU students, continue to take classes online.

Our photo gallery shows the food being delivered and organized before being boxed for the students. For more information on HU, visit their website.
