The 14th annual Food For Kidz packaging event for the Atwater, Grove City, Cosmos area will be held on Wednesday, September 21, at the Atwater Community Center.
Packaging will begin at 4 pm and continue until 8 pm. Volunteers of all ages are invited to participate for part or all of this time. It takes approximately 240 volunteers to keep all tables packaging at full production during the evening. Our goal for this year is 60,000 meals.
It’s the mission at Food For Kidz, established in Steward, MN, to package and distribute nutritious meals to hungry children both locally, and worldwide. It’s important to remember that ordinary folks can have a positive impact on the suffering caused by wars, natural disasters, and famine. 20,000 children die of malnutrition every day!
Coming together with friends, family, and other community members is a way to make a difference in the lives of hungry children everywhere. Seeing compassionate and concerned community members of all ages working together is a powerful example to the children in our area as well.
Join us for an enjoyable and rewarding evening. If you choose to donate funds to cover the costs for the ingredients that go into each meal (15 cents), you may bring your donation to the community center on Wednesday or send it to:
