ITHACA, N.Y. -- The Cornell men's basketball team has had a history of serving the Cornell and Ithaca, N.Y. communities, but rarely have they had such an opportunity to make as large an impact as they had working with the Ithaca "Feed My Starving Children" group in September.

Along with other varsity teams at Cornell, including the women's lacrosse program, men's basketball players assisted in helping pack more than 150,000 means, translating into 429 children who will receive meals for a year through the program.

Among the organizations that partnered for the event were Shared Journeys, Community Faith Partnership, Cornell International Christian Fellowship, Cornell Law School, Ithaca Community LEAH, Young Life, Vineyard Church, Covenant Love Church, Cornell Athletics, International Students Inc., Latter Day Saints, Living Water Christian Fellowship, Community Faith Partnership, Ithaca College Circle K, Cornell Interfraternity Council and Trinity Lutheran Church.
