Can we end hunger in our world?
Volunteers at Wesley United Methodist Church pitched in to help, preparing 10,000 dehydrated meals of rice, soy, dried vegetables and vitamins for Stop Hunger Now, a humanitarian relief charity based in Raleigh, N.C.
They formed an assembly line in the church basement on Friday, April 10, pouring ingredients from large sacks donated by food companies, filling plastic bags with cups full of ingredients, sealing the bags and packing them in cardboard boxes.
When boiled in water, each plastic bagful provides a meal for six people in developing countries, said Ben Gerrish, a program warehouse coordinator for Stop World Hunger.
The church raised $2,900 to pay for the meals and packaging, Gerrish said.

An Easter hunt doesn’t get much more egg-citing than this.
One youngster won a free bike, another found $50 in an egg. Still others found $1 – and even if you found no money, you still could get a free hot dog.
You could mix and mingle with Middletown police officers and members of the Middletown Volunteer Fire Department – and see how it feels to sit in the driver’s seat of a fire truck.
If that wasn’t enough, you could go inside Wesley United Methodist Church for arts and crafts, or to pet and hold a real, live rabbit.
The event, held by Youth 10x Better Ministries, was a roaring success judging by the large number of families that showed up. The sun broke through some early morning wind and cold, and shone brightly for most of the day.
The Easter baskets were put together by Penn State Harrisburg students from the Epsilon Omicron Chapter of Phi Sigma Phi. That was just one of several ways the chapter worked to support the event.
See who was there!
