LMHS Football Helps Fight Food Insecurity with 'Caring for Friends'

For high school football players, August is usually a time for two-a-day practices, lifting weights and learning the playbook. While the Lower Merion High School football team has been doing more than their fair share of work on the field, they recently took some time out of their busy preseason schedule to help those-in-need.

On August 11, the Lower Merion players and coaches made the trip to Northeast Philadelphia to volunteer their time preparing meals and sorting and boxing food at Caring for Friends, a non-profit whose mission is to provide food and friendship to seniors, kids and adults in the five-county Philadelphia region.

Caring for Friends' senior meals program serves more than 9,000 clients, the majority of whom are homebound seniors and veterans. Through their food bank's community food redistribution efforts, they are able to provide fresh, frozen and pantry-stable food to over 200 organizations and community non-profits throughout the Greater Philadelphia area.

The team will officially kick off their season on Friday, August 26 as they hit the road to take on Pottstown High School. Kickoff is set for 7:00 p.m.
