Guatemala Shipment Full of Meals Will Help the Poorest of the Poor

Vine International in Guatemala will soon be sharing 1,188 boxes of Mercy Meals (256,608 meals) with the very poorest of the poor. The Norfolk warehouse volunteers worked hard to ‘floor load’ meaning off load from pallets by hand into a Dole shipping container today. Dole economizes by shipping foods to the US then filling the containers with humanitarian aid to be shipped back to Guatemala. What wonderful gifts for the families in Guatemala.
