More than 300 people donned gauzy hair nets, plastic gloves and papery aprons Friday morning at the Lanier Technical College Forsyth Conference Center. Luckily, all of them were more focused on the task at hand than looking fashionable. The outfits were necessary since they were working together to portion, package, seal and box up some 50,000 nonperishable meals for those in need.
