Food insecurity fought locally

Posted: Monday, March 4, 2013 8:45 am

LEWISBURG — With cash at a premium in some households, elementary school students may feel the pinch in the form of hunger pangs.

Some of SnackPack packers were Pan-Hellenic sorority members and others were Bucknell Buddies coordinated by the Office of Civic Engagement. They included junior class member Alex Panzarino of Ossining N.Y., a member of the Delta Gamma sorority.
