Miami Dolphins, AARP Foundation Host Fifth Annual Million Meal Pack on NSU’s Fort Lauderale /Davie Campus

#MillionMealPack

The Miami Dolphins and AARP Foundation teamed up for the 5th Annual Million Meal Pack in the Rick Case Arena at the Don Taft University Center.  Participants packed 1,017,504 meals that will be delivered by U.S. Hunger to older adults in Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties.

At the Million Meal Pack, more than 4,906 enthusiastic volunteers worked an assembly line to pack nutritious Jambalaya meals of red lentils, rice, dehydrated vegetables and pink Himalayan salt. Volunteers also were invited to take part in a Community Fair as a thank you for their service. The fair’s lively atmosphere featured live music, football activities, performances by the Miami Dolphins Cheerleaders and chances to win prizes. Participants were also able to learn about additional volunteer opportunities to serve their senior neighbors though interactive demonstrations, speakers and take-home materials.
