This meetup is being organized by another group (H-Town South Asians and Friends)
All it takes is a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, a piece of fresh fruit, and one half-pint of juice to keep a child from going hungry for a day.
This is why each week since April 2004, groups of about 15 to 20 volunteers have been coming out to The Hare Krishna Temple of Houston to prepare sack lunches consisting of sandwiches, fruit, and juice for an estimated 300 to 500 hungry children. Every Sunday between the hours 3 p.m. to 5 p.m., the dining hall of the temple is turned into an assembly line of sorts with some of the volunteers lined up spreading peanut butter or jelly on bread; others focus on bagging the sandwiches; still others fill brown paper bags with fruit and juice and line them up in rows on two long tables.
