Feed My Starving Children.

Saturday we volunteered with our sunday school class for a 2 hour session to pack meals for an organization called Feed My Starving Children! It was such an easy way to make a big difference. In our 2 hours our whole group packed a years worth of meals for 155 children!
We got the added bonus of getting to wear lovely hairnets! So funny!
In each group there were two people pouring ingredients, two others holding the bags and weighing them, and two more sealing them up. One last person packed the bags in boxes. A team effort for sure!
Through the whole event (Wednesday-Saturday) our church packed over 500,000 meals to go out and be delivered to hungry kids! We learned that there is more than enough food being produced in the world to feed everyone but some countries have such a surplus and we just need to get it over to where they need it! Feed My Starving Children is doing a great job at doing just that! They make it easy for people to volunteer and provide the "man power" and then they deliver it to missionaries around the world to distribute to children in need! Pray for this great organization and the kids who receive their help!
