Abby Acosta, 9, of New London, a member of the Boys and Girls Club of Southeastern Connecticut, and John Shepard, director of information protection for Cigna in Bloomfield, give each other a high-five after their group filled another box Tuesday, Jan. 28, 2014. Volunteers from Cigna IT leadership, attending a three-day leadership forum, and members of the Boys and Girls Club of Southeastern Connecticut worked together during a Hunger Project to package thousands of meals in one hour for the charitable organization Feeding Children Everywhere. The group gathered at the Mystic Marriott to package dry ingredients for a lentil casserole that consists of lentils, rice, and vegetables that will be distributed around the country and around the world.
