Meal Goal Reached

Meal Goal Reached

Apr 8, 2013 at 1:00 pm

Around two-thousand volunteers spent the weekend putting together                 427-thousand pre-packed meals as part of the Feed My Starving Children Mobile-Pack event in Grand Forks.   This was the third year in a row that supporters transformed the public works building into a temporary food warehouse.   Each meal consists of powdered vitamins…dry vegetables…and rice.   To date the Grand Forks group has funded one-million-18-thousand meals.   Program Chair Jodie Storhaug says that’s enough to feed 930 children for three years.   Storhaug says the meals will target the hungry in Haiti.   Backers raised over 90-thousand dollars for this year’s effort.   Storhaug says they hope to hold a fourth event next spring – if enough money is available.
