New Windsor Middle students make lunches to feed hungry

New Windsor Middle School's sixth-grade students participated in a hunger project yesterday to make 200 bagged lunches for soup kitchens in Baltimore and Westminster.

The school recently honored students who had participated in various student service projects. Matt Perkins and Dori Thompson from Francis Scott Key High School spoke to the students about service.

Heifer Project sends rabbits to Cameroon

Heifer Project International recently sent 30 New Zealand white rabbits to the West African nation of Cameroon to become part of the "Health For All" rabbit project.

The rabbit program began in 1981 in Cameroon to encourage small holder rabbit production to provide low-cost, high-protein meat for rural families.

The project group also cooperates with St. Mary's Home Economics Center, a Catholic school for girls, married women, young mothers and handicapped women. School graduates teach families and communities improved health, sanitation and nutrition and encourage people to consider raising rabbits as a source of protein.

Families receiving rabbits are required to attend a training session in rabbit management and care. They also must develop low-cost rabbit hutches and small-scale pasture improvements.
