Medford, Ore., — “The fundamentals of children’s nutrition and well being, is something that is huge in their progression to become really big, and healthy in life.” said one volunteer, Nicole Booker.
Hundreds of volunteers of every age met at Medford’s First Baptist Church today, with a specific purpose – to put together meals for the hungry.
“We are all so blessed and don’t realize, good job honey, how blessed we really are, and just to give back a little is so important.” said Booker.
“Feed my starving children” is a non profit organization working to end starvation around the world.
Their project right now?
“Because of the hurricane in Haiti, we promised them 15 million meals.” said event team leader, Meghan Fields.
And they’re well on their way to that goal.
Volunteers in Medford put together over 100,000 meals in just a few hours.
And the event here was just one of the many across the country, working to make a dent in a problem that reaches across the globe.
“Kids dying of starvation is such a simple thing that can be fixed, there’s enough money and resources around the world, that no child should be dying of starvation.” said Fields.
