    DALLAS TWP. — The Department of Social Work at Misericordia University will present the workshop, “A Community Partnership with a Social Work Program to Address Childhood Hunger,’’ at the 2017 Association of Baccalaureate Social Work Program Directors Annual Conference in New Orleans in March.

    Susan McDonald, Ph.D., L.S.W., chair of the Department of Social Work, and students Elizabeth Saba of Wilkes-Barre, and William Faust of Hunlock Creek will present their model for collaborating with the Dinners for Kids program that was founded by the owners of Ollie’s Restaurant in Edwardsville.

    The initial model was established in 2011 and continues to provide six hot meals to children in the Wyoming Valley West School District with the support of local volunteers and benefactors.

    The Department of Social Work at Misericordia University collaborated with the Dinners for Kids Program and expanded it to include the Dallas School District, where Misericordia’s volunteers provide six hot meals a week to 31 children. The meals are packaged in microwaveable containers in the kitchen area of the dining hall on campus, which added a large refrigeration unit to store the nutritious meals after a student-run fundraiser raised more than $10,000. The meals then are delivered to the families’ homes.
