NEWBURY PARK, Calif. - Dec. 11, 2017 - PRLog -- Youth & Government delegates from the Miller Family YMCA of Newbury Park spent the evening of November 29 making 400 lunches for the homeless. The lunches were delivered to the East Rancho Dominquez Community Center in Compton.

The Miller YMCA Youth & Government delegates are in 9 through 12 grade at Newbury Park High School and other local high schools. They are part of a statewide program of 90 delegations that learn about how government works while they prepare, introduce and debate bills in Sacramento at an annual conference in February.

The students made peanut butter sandwiches, bagged carrots and placed them in lunch bags along with chips, granola bars and napkins.

The event was coordinated by L.U.N.C.H. (http://lunchla.org/) (Local United Network in Combating Hunger), a non-profit organization that was created to assemble lunches for the homeless.

"High schoolers in Youth & Government not only learn how government can make positive changes, but also how they can help others by their own actions," says Veronica Rodarte, lead advisor to the Miller Y's Youth & Government program.

After the Miller Y closes at the end of December, the Newbury Park youth and government delegation will keep the Miller name and continue its program in the area.
