We are the Metro Tech Hunger Fighters, a group of four students that want to make a difference for the hungry in OKC. We are students in Metro Tech’s Biomedical Sciences Academy. As part of our community service project for HOSA, we chose to support the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma (RFBO).
Please meet two of the MT Hunger Fighters and learn a little bit about why the issue of hunger is important to them.
Elizabeth Morris, 16, grew up in Oklahoma City. She comes from a large family and understands the importance of food to feed her family. Elizabeth has a huge heart for her community and is excited to push the Hunger Fighters mission to its fullest potential.
Melanie Stromie, 17, has experienced the struggle of making ends meet at home. Her family had money problems and at times it was hard keeping food on the table. She wants to help feed other families that know what hunger feels like. Melanie is proud to be a MT Hunger Fighter!
The MT Hunger Fighters chose to support the buy cialis RFBO after touring the facility. “We did an exercise to try to find food on a limited or non-existent budget, Melanie said. “We saw firsthand how RFBO grows some of their own food and distributes food to feed OKCs hungry”.
This year, the Hunger Fighters are raising awareness about hunger by visiting their peers and at elementary schools about talking to them about resources and ways to help fight hunger in Oklahoma. “We will be hosting food drives and a fundraising run,” Elizabeth said. “We really want to spread our message and gain even more momentum”. The Hunger Fighters are hoping to host
a run on the Metro Tech Springlake campus on March 30, 2012.
We care about our community. We are students who believe we can make a difference. We are the Metro Tech Hunger Fighters.

Metro Tech is preparing me for the career I want. I am currently a second year, baker’s assistant in Culinary Arts. When I was a Sophomore in high school I was unsure about what career path to take.
I’ve always enjoyed food, airplanes and journalism. I eventually chose Culinary Arts at Metro Tech and started my Junior year in high school. I have loved it ever since.
I’ve met great people at Metro Tech. The environment is welcoming and open to new ideas. In my experience, there is a fine line between teacher and student. As a second year student, I find myself teaching first year students what I know. It makes me excited to see the new faces “get it” just like I did the year before.
I have been promoted to a manager status on occasion, making sure everyone is in their place and the kitchen runs smoothly, creating exquisite dishes. There is a time for play and a time to work. Our instructors know how to have fun while teaching, making my experience even more rewarding.
I love to be in the kitchen, tasting our creations and experiencing new flavors. I’m happy about the choice I made to come to Metro Tech while I finished high school. I plan to continue my education after Metro Tech and become the BEST CHEF in Oklahoma!
