A meal that nourishes the soul

31 May

Just think about the following questions…

When is the last time you missed a meal?

When was the last time you were truly hungry?

Did you know one in seven people will go to bed hungry tonight?

 Feeding Children Everywhere, a global charity based in Orlando, has shipped meals all over the world, but through its Love Local program, meals are being packed locally by our friends and neighbors and shared locally at food pantries and schools.

Hundreds of volunteers organize for ‘packing events’ to pack meals for the hungry in Central Florida. In April, “Osceola Connected” volunteer groups put thousands of meals together fast at a packing event in Celebration.

The meals from FCE are made up of a special balance of protein, vitamins and carbs and they that can be shipped just about anywhere.

“When we come to make a difference in other people’s lives and help other people, many times it’s in our hearts and our spirits that we get fed,” Kile Riggs, director of global logistics for Feeding Children Everywhere, said.

June 5th is National Hunger Awareness Day. Consider grabbing a group and rolling up your sleeves to pack some healthy meals for people who really need them. To find out more about the meal packing event on June 5th for Feeding Children Everywhere, click here.
