Nearly 32,000 Kids Against Hunger meals packed
About 165 volunteers packed 31,968 meals in 3.25 hours Sunday afternoon during the Kids Against Hunger food packing session at the Word of Life Lutheran Church gym.
Don Fields, whose warehouse in Mount Pleasant serves the regional Kids Against Hunger area, said Monday paperwork was being processed and a shipment to Honduras was being organized.
The Food Bank in Ottumwa also receives meals to be distributed throughout southeast Iowa.
The five-church Kids Against Hunger team includes: First Christian (Disciples of Christ), Fairfield Friends, Faith United Methodist, First Presbyterian and Word of Life Lutheran.
“Some people came that I don’t believe had a connection to any of the five churches,” said Don Henderson, the meal packing event coordinator. “We would love to have more join us, and they can get information by contacting any of these churches.”
Since the first packing event in September 2012, the five churches united have packaged 81,594 meals in three sessions.
