In order to fulfill the mission statement, “Purpose beyond ourselves”, Community Council hosted an event that allowed students to make sandwiches, which were sent to a local food pantry. The event took place on Oct. 26 during break in the student lounge.

Students made 100 bagged lunches, which were then sent to the North Hollywood Interfaith Food Pantry. Students who participated in the event did not receive any community service credit.

Members of the council said they hope to hold this event every month this year.

“I think the primary benefit will be in its regularity — to serve as a reminder that we’ve got a lot of work to do in making our little corner of the world a better place,” Community Council faculty advisor and school chaplain J.Young said.
