Feed My Starving Children

MORRIS, MINNESOTA (Morris Sun Tribune) - The Feed My Starving Children food packing event is growing larger every year.

Organizers for the third-annual event in Morris said volunteers will reach their goal of 200,000 meals by Thursday evening.

More than 1,000 people will have volunteered to pack meals, which are distributed to starving people in Haiti, said organizer Tamala Sperr.

"We've had more volunteers, more meals, more enthusiasm," Sperr said. "It's all been very good."

The massive earthquake that decimated Haiti earlier this year has left even more people in need, and it led the Feed My Starving Children organization to ask communities participating in food packing events to pack more meals during the three-day event at the Morris Area Elementary School cafeteria.

The 200,000 meals packed this year surpasses the total of 161,000 meals last year and the 150,000 meals packed the first year.

Each of the meal packets cost 17 cents, so FMSC needed to raise $34,000 for 200,000 meals. To donate, visit www.fmsc.org/mobilepack/donate.
