On February 25th, the Indiana Pacers teamed up with George Hill to package meals for children both locally and abroad who struggle with hunger. The Kids Against Hunger campaign is designed to help feed the hungry and also send the message of volunteering to children in the community.

Last year, George Hill participated in the packaging event and enjoyed it so much, he wanted to help sponsor the event in 2013.
Volunteers started at 10 am with a goal of packaging 44,000 meals. The meals included rice, a soy-based protein, as well as dehydrated vegetables. Each meal contained 21 vitamins and minerals so that each child who receives one will gain necessary enrichment to their diet.
After four hours of service and more than 200 volunteers, the initial goal of 44,000 meals was surpassed. At the end of the day, 45,360 meals were packaged and will ship to places all around the world.
