The Sanibel-Captiva Rotary Club and Sanibel Congregational United Church of Christ held a “Meals of Hope” meal packing event on Nov. 9 at The Community House on Sanibel. For the second year in a row, participants joined efforts to pack more than 25,000 meals for families and individuals facing food insecurity. They assembled the ingredients for packets of macaroni and cheese to serve six people. This year’s meal packets are intended for pantries in the Sanibel-Fort Myers area, while those assembled last year went to those recovering from Hurricane Irma.
