In the spirit of Hero Week at Friendship Village, residents of Friendship Village volunteered at Feed My Starving Children in late July.
Together with other volunteers, they packed 99 boxes of food.
This will provide 21,384 meals to children in Haiti who would suffer from hunger and malnutrition if not for these simple yet nourishing meals of rice, protein powder, vitamins, and dehydrated vegetables.
These boxes will feed 58 children for a year.
