From Rotary Club of Wellesley:
The Rotary Club of Wellesley is sponsoring a Stop Hunger Now food packaging event on Oct. 17, starting at 10AM at the Wellesley Community Center, 219 Washington Street.
One hundred volunteers are needed in order to reach the goal to package 20,000 meals in about three hours. Interested participants can register at www.wellesleyrotary.org . Walk-in volunteers are also welcome.
The meal assembly process combines rice, soy, dehydrated vegetables and a flavoring mix. All together, including 21 essential vitamins and minerals sealed in small packages containing six servings. Meal packages are shipped around the world to support feeding programs and crisis relief. The packaged food stores easily, transports quickly and has a shelf life of two years.
“Participating in Stop Hunger Now is a great way to provide healthy, cost effective meals,” says John Adams, Rotary president. The Rotary club is funding the food and packaging at 25 cents per meal. Help is needed so we can reach our packaging goal to combat hunger here in the United States and around the world.
Established in 1998, Stop Hunger Now coordinates the distribution of food and their life-saving aid to crisis-burdened areas around the world. For more information, visit www.stophungernow.org
