Stop Hunger Now feeds thousands at low cost

Dear Editor:

On Feb. 20, we had 248 volunteers at our church, the 1st Church of Coral Springs, to package 10,800 pouches of nutritional dry food meals to be shipped all over the world. We worked with the non-profit Stop Hunger Now (888-501-8440) to prepare the packages and get them shipped out to help feed hungry children. Each pouch feeds six children, so our 10,800 pouches will feed 64,800 starving children a meal today.

The entire process only took two hours – our church volunteers set up an assembly line – and each pouch of food only costs 29 cents! The pouches contain rice, soy, vitamins and minerals, and even a gravy packet.

I am writing to you to bring attention to the Stop Hunger Now program, and to make other churches, high schools and anyone interested aware that they can help stop hunger for a low cost.
