BILLERICA — W.L. French Excavating Corporation recently partnered with Meals of Hope to pack 15,000 meals for struggling individuals.

Approximately 30 volunteers worked in groups to pack fortified macaroni and cheese that will be distributed within the local community with the help of the Merrimack Valley Food Bank.

“We feel a tremendous responsibility to give back to our community, and we do that in a number of ways,” said CEO Bill French. “Our entire team had a great time packing meals for a very important cause.”

Meals of Hope, a Florida-based charitable organization, developed five meals specifically designed for the American palate and added vitamins, minerals and proteins to supplement an unbalanced diet. Food packages are designed to address the need for an economical, nutritious solution to aid in the fight against hunger. Each packet contains enough food to provide six to eight meals.

“We are thankful and appreciative of the support provided by W.L. French to help us combat the hunger epidemic,” said Meals of Hope Director Jack Day. “These types of events make for a fun and rewarding day for the volunteers, and they help us deliver healthy meals to underserved individuals.”
