On Sept. 8, 75 volunteers packaged more than 10,000 dry meals in less than an hour at Faith Lutheran Church. Each meal has enough nutritional value to sustain one person for a whole day. All meals will be distributed in Rock County. This project was done with the guidance of Kids Against Hunger leader Gary Bersell.

Each meal’s ingredients cost approximately 10 cents. The members of Faith Lutheran Church raised $1,000, and Thrivent Financial for Lutherans, North Rock County, matched this amount. This match will help cover future events.

If your organization would like to help the hungry and experience the joy and fellowship of giving, consider meal packaging with Kids Against Hunger. A hearty thank you goes out to the volunteers and Thrivent.
