    Quinn Scarvey (right) walks with Floyd Freeman (on bike) and Daquan Donaldson (center) to Lenoir Rhyne University for a meal on Wednesday. Quinn Scarvey had just graduated with a degree in elementary education and realized that she still had 129 meals on her account. She'd paid for the whole year, but she'd skipped breakfast and other meals 125 times -- and the meals don't roll over to next year. If she didn't use them by Thursday they would be gone. An idea popped into Scarvey's head: give the meals away -- give them to Hickory's unfortunate. Bring 100 people who are down on their luck to Lenoir-Rhyne for dinner. Her friends who also had unused meal credits got on board. They fed 100 people.
