The University of Washington Chapter of SAL decided to combine a chapter meeting with a service project to help feed the hungry through the #HashtagLunchbag movement.
They first had a quick general meeting to briefly talk about events for the next quarter. Then, they put together the sack lunches for #HashtagLunchbag. After using up all the supplies, they walked to University District in Seattle and distributed the 28 bags to people who needed a meal.
#HashtagLunchBag started on Christmas Day 2012 in a Los Angeles apartment with just a small group of friends. Their main goal was to prepare and deliver a hearty and well-balanced meal to the local homeless community. Once they shared their experience with social media, their project went global. Visit the #HashtagLunchbag website for more information.
Chapter President Kelsey Huntington summarized, “This event was our general meeting, a service event, and was a lot of fun at the same time. It was really rewarding when the people we were handing bags out to were appreciative of what we were trying to accomplish.”
