Center City third graders take anti-hunger message to Casey’s office

    Bob Casey has a delivery coming his way at 11 this morning, and it’s not lunch.

    Third grades from McCall Elementary in Society Hill will deliver 1,000 paper plates to his office.
    The plates, inscribed with anti-hunger messages, are part of the students’ service learning curriculum. They’ve been working with teacher Lisa Hantman to address hunger in their community. More than 30 students will take their message to Casey’s Center City office to ask him to fight hunger in Pennsylvania.
