The Atwater, Grove City, Cosmos area will hold its 12th annual food packaging event on Wednesday, September 24 at the Atwater Community Center. Packaging will begin at 4 p.m. and continue until 8 p.m. volunteers of all ages are invited to participate for an hour, two, or all four depending on what stamina and other commitments permit. It takes approximately 300 volunteer s to keep all tables packaging at full production for the evening. Our goal for this year is 60,000 meals.
It’s the mission of Food For Kidz, established in Stewart, Minnesota, to package and distribute dehydrated, nutritious meals to hungry children both locally and worldwide. When situations like natural disasters, crowded refugee camps and famine seem insurmountable, it’s important to remember that people like you, coming together with friends and family to package food and offer compassion make a difference!
Your financial support is also important to cover the costs for the ingredients that go into each meal. Please send your donations to: Food For Kidz, P.O. Box 179, Atwater, MN 56209 or bring them to the packaging event September 24. Join us for an enjoyable and rewarding evening!
