Ever wonder what goes on when 4-Hers are filling a food order during food pantry distribution? Here’s a time-lapse video showing all of the activity behind the scenes as 4-Hers fill and haul out one family’s order during a monthly distribution day.
The Olympia Pacesetters 4-H Club of McLean County, Illinois, needs help to fuel the cause feeding the hungry in their community. 4-Hers established Helping Hands Community Center food pantry and clothing exchange in 2008. To provide fresh produce for the food pantry, 4-Hers worked with the village to utilize an empty lot to begin the Stanford Sprouts Community Garden in 2009, becoming a service-learning project for 4-Hers to learn about horticulture while feeding and beautifying their community.
