PENNOCK, MN (November 11, 2008) – Members of Salem Mission Covenant Church were among 150 volunteers from the community who packaged 10,440 meals in five hours to feed hungry children.

Each package will feed six people, says Salem pastor Michael McCain, pointing out that this means the volunteers packed enough meals to feed 62,000 people.

MealsBoxes are packed with 36 packages to a box and are distributed locally, nationally, and internationally, McCain says. Nearly 550 packages each were sent to the Swift and Kandiyohi Counties Food Shelves in order to assist local communities.

Kids Against Hunger, an organization based in Stewart, Minnesota, will distribute the meals. The local KMS Ministerial Association sponsored the event at the Kerkhoven Community Center.

“The mission of Kids Against Hunger is to provide the opportunity to anyone to package a specially designed, fully nutritious meal and to distribute this packet of food to hungry children and their families where crisis has struck and there is immediate need,” McCain says.
