MENOMONIE, Wis. (WEAU)- Several hands will be at work Wednesday afternoon to help fight hunger in Dunn County, and they're hoping you can help!

UW-Stout students, staff and community members are volunteering their time for the Spring into Service Meal Pack-a-thon. They're partnering up with Menomonie Rotary to pack 25,000 meals at the Memorial Student Center. Each bag serves six people which equals out to nearly 4,200 bags.

About 75 percent of the bags will be donated to local food pantries in Dunn County. If you have a hand, there are 3 one-hour shifts; volunteers are asked to pre-register.
