The Chicago Telugu Association (CTA) and the North America Telugu Society (NATS) have successfully conducted a meals-packing program for malnourished poor children sponsored by Feed My Starving Children (FMSC) in Aurora, Illinois.

The CTA-NATS team recently helped pack more than 59,000 meals that could serve hundreds of kids in underserved communities, according to a news release issued by NATS.

The event was coordinated and led by NATS directors Ravi Achanta and Praveen Moturu as well as CTA President Nagendra Vege. About 90 volunteers took part in the event. Achanta and Moturu noted the importance of introducing the culture of giving into the young minds and encouraging them to be part of community service and how a small thing can make a big impact on the needy.

Vege said the event has always been satisfying for all CTA-NATS volunteers in Chicago. 

The volunteers worked tirelessly to make the event a success. The team members included Srinivas Chundu, Prasad Talluru, Ram Gopal Devarapalli, Sailendra Sunkara, Vamsi Manne, Uma Devarapalli, Madhavi Tippisetty, Rani Vege, Madhavi Achanta, Ajay Reddy, Srinivas Talasila, Seshu Uppalapati, Kousalya Gutta, Rajashekar Kandula, Ravi Ramamuni, Srinivas Achanta, Nagabhushnam Bhimsetty, Venkat Tokkala, Anil Moparthi, Ramesh Kolukuluri and Ramesh Tippisetty.

FMSC is a nonprofit committed to feeding the needy children. It thanked the volunteers for their generosity to help poor children. Certificates of appreciation were given to all the participants.
