“"In their hunger you gave them bread from heaven and in their thirst you brought them water from the rock; you told them to go in and take possession of the land you had sworn with uplifted hand to give them."

Nehemiah 9:15 NIV

 

A program of Feeding Children International

 

WHY: To package 24,000 meals to feed hungry and starving children in the U.S. and around the world.

 

VOLUNTEER TO HELP PACKAGE MEALS DURING THE MOBILE MEAL PACKAGING EVENT. 

Volunteers will form teams in assembly line fashion to measure, weigh and package the four ingredients in these life saving and life changing meals that costs only 28 cents per meal to produce.  This process takes less than 2 hours with the help of 60 volunteers of all ages. 

 

To volunteer, email or call the church office stmarks@bright.net / 419-738-3122.

Hello,

We had a great packaging of the rice packets for Kids Against Hunger on September 21 with our 64 volunteers (40 volunteers from St. Mark’s) packaging 17,064 meals.  I kept information from each of the 12 years we have been doing this together and shared some facts and figures with the group before we started working.  A couple people asked if I would share it with your church.
