After getting snowed out on the original date, the rescheduled meal packing last Saturday was a resounding success! A gym full of volunteers of all ages helped assemble meals of dried rice, vegetables, other ingredients that will be sent around the world to feed those in need. Some of the meals go to local food banks, some get stored to be used nationally for disaster relief, and others will be distributed internationally to feed those in impoverished parts of the world.
We had a goal to pack 40,000 meals – more than we’ve ever packed since we’ve been doing the annual event – and we made it! We packed just over our goal with 40,223 meals!
Thanks to everyone who helped at the event, those who donated in the noisy offering throughout December, and everyone who lifted up the event in prayer.
