Brittenford Systems partners with Stop Hunger Now to raise $6,000 and package over 24,000 meals for those in need.
What is Stop Hunger Now?
Stop Hunger Now is a meal packaging program that supports school feeding programs and crisis relief. Over 100,000 volunteers have donated and packaged meals through Stop Hunger Now’s meal packaging program. It is a fun, hands-on mission project that is suitable for all ages.
The meal packaging event involves an assembly process which combines rice, soy, dehydrated vegetables and flavoring mix, including 21 essential vitamins and minerals, into small meal packages. All meal packages from Stop Hunger Now are shipped around the world to support crisis relief and school feeding programs. Not only does the food store easily, but transports quickly and has a 5-year shelf life.
What is the goal?
$6,000 – 24,000 meals.
“Last year, we raised $5,000 and packaged over 20,000 meals to support the holistic work of Salesian Missions in Haiti to socially and economically rehabilitate street children.” says Shereen Mahoney, CEO at Brittenford Systems. “This year, we want to do more so we have set a goal of $6,000, which will allow us to package 24,000 meals to help those in need.”
