‘Cav Pack’ lunches help feed students at Western Technical College

Lunches a program of Phi Theta Kappa chapter on campus

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) – Poverty impacts people of all ages, even college students.

That’s why members of Western Technical College’s Phi Theta Kappa honor society gave bagged lunches on campus Wednesday.

The Cav Pack program was designed by the group, which is part of a larger campus initiative that provides resources to students.

The campus gave the student group a grant to help run the program.

Students say it provides some relief for others to get through the day.

“When they come and see the lunches, it’s like they’re really excited. And, it’s just really going to help students to focus on theri education and not worry about, you know, where to get their next meal,” said Korto Thurne, President, Phi Theta Kappa at Western Technical College.

This is the third week this semester the group is handing out bagged lunches.

The program runs through the first five weeks of classes.
