The University of Nebraska-Lincoln's Greek organizations traditionally spend homecoming week constructing elaborate lawn displays and floats.

But one fraternity, Sigma Phi Epsilon, is forgoing much of the time and expense of creating a temporary display to instead give back to the community. Members of the fraternity spent two nights this week making portions of a rice-soy meal to be distributed by Kids Against Hunger to starving children and their families in more than 60 countries.

The Lincoln Kids Against Hunger is a local affiliate of the Minnesota-based charity and has packaged more than 5 million meals since its founding in 1999.

The fraternity also plans to raise $4,000 to help make 200,000 Kids Against Hunger meals.
