Famine participants share thoughts and tips on lasting through the fast.

From 6:30 a.m. on March 7 to 12:30 p.m. the following day, service club MV Interact held its third annual 30 Hour Famine, a fundraiser promoting awareness for world hunger. All donations collected during the process were to be sent to humanitarian organization World Vision, which seeks to end starvation in third-world countries.

Per the event’s rules, participants were not allowed to eat during the allotted 30 hours, save for clear liquids or a small snack if they felt faint. Afterward they were rewarded with a potluck lunch supplied by Interact officers and members of Interact’s Community Projects Committee.
