Mid-Atlantic Branch held back-to-back Kids Against Hunger events in May 2019. Hope Lutheran Church of Levittown, PA, welcomed over 60 participants to pack 16,850 Latin meals – with added dried black beans and special spices, vitamins, and minerals – on May 11th. The following Saturday, May 18th, Christ Memorial Lutheran Church in Malvern, PA, packed 22,680 rice and veggie meals thanks to more than 50 volunteers.
Both groups enjoyed the opportunity not only to serve, but also to join in fellowship with people from their congregations, schools and neighboring churches. Because the Lord provided open hearts and willing hands, 39,530 total meals (105 boxes!) will be added to a June shipment for the people of Haiti.
