Isenberg School students volunteer at food bank

More than two dozen entering first-year students from the Isenberg School of Management got acquainted Aug. 6 by participating in a community service project at the Greater Boston Food Bank.

The 26 students were joined by associate dean Dennis Hanno, Kim Jones, director of Internships, and several upperclass students. After a 20-minute briefing, they sorted a total of 26,000 pounds of food, of which 18,200 pounds were saved for distribution to the Food Bank’s 900 member agencies. Each volunteer sorted food for approximately 438 meals, according to Food Bank officials.

Along with the community service project, the students also participated in different team building exercises allowing each student to define their leadership abilities and roles.
