On Sunday, Nov. 11, the community is invited to package food for the hungry at the Eagles Orchid Inn in Sleepy Eye.
With two shifts to help, families, parents, grandparents and children can package food either in the first shift from 11:15-1:15 p.m. or the second shift from 1-3 p.m.
The packages contain a nutritious meal of rice, soy, vitamins and vegetables that is fed to hungry children around the world. In 2011, over 65,000 meals were packaged.
The goal for 2012, is to raise $9,750 and to package more than 65,000 meals.
To donate money, write Food For Kidz on an envelope and drop in any church collection basket or at the schools around Sleepy Eye.
