Assembly line

Calvary Christian Academy fourth-graders Alison Crabtree, left, and Jack Knight, measure items Wednesday that will be packed into meals to help tackle food insecurity. Students, staff and volunteers worked from stations set up in assembly-line fashion — bagging, measuring, adding soy and noodles, weighing, sealing and packing — to prepare 20,000 macaroni and cheese meals as part of the fifth Calvary Cares project, a partnership with Florida-based Meals of Hope. Volunteers distributed the meals to the Union Rescue Mission, Salvation Army, LaVale United Methodist Church, Second Baptist Church in Cumberland, Catherine’s Blessing Cupboard at Calvary Baptist Church in Cresaptown and the Western Maryland Food Bank, which will pass them along to their clients.
