Members of the local community and University of Illinois faculty, staff, and students will join forces to kick off National Volunteer Week 2013, which will take place from April 21-27. One project that is already being planned involves packaging 146,000 meals - one thousand for every year of public engagement since the University was chartered - for local foodbanks to be distributed to needy families in Champaign-Urbana. The University's National Soybean Research Laboratory created the recipe in-house, so it's an "Illinois" meal. Hundreds of volunteers are needed for the food packaging project, so we are volunteering as a group for the 12 ' 2 p.m. time slot. We would love for you, your family and friends, or colleagues to join us. (Children 12 and up are eligible to participate).

Register for the Event:  Contact Laura Bleill for more information and to register your company; we will register as a group.
