FEED THE HUNGRY

"Feed the Hungry"

On April 11th, a food packaging event was held at Faith Lutheran Church.  It is no surprise that more families are struggling in our failing economy. There are 555,000 hungry kids in Pennsylvania. In Union County 1,680 children are not getting proper nutrition.

This years goal was to package 35,000 meals.  In the end, over 42,000 meals were packaged in four hours, thanks to the overwhelming number of volunteers (160 in total).

Matthew Martin (see picture below) who live in Massachusetts, travels all over the Northeast and supervises the event.  All of the food will be distributed to local food banks. 

A special "thank you" to Nancy Ard for coordinating.
