The event is held in support of a New Haven community service group, which formed back in 2012.

Over 150 volunteers came out to take part in one of the largest meal packing events Halsey has organized for Harvest Pack.

The meals will help feed the people of Haiti, who are still suffering from the aftermath of Hurricane Matthew. Most of the food will be shipped to St. Therese School in Haiti, run by a community of Haitian Catholic brothers.
