Volunteers Pack Meals for Stop Hunger Now, Net $37K

In three shifts over an eight-hour period last Saturday Morning, more than 600 local volunteers packaged 150,000 meals to help eradicate hunger worldwide. The event benefitted Stop Hunger Now, an international hunger relief organization that coordinates the distribution of food and other life-saving aid to countries around the world.

The meal-packaging activity at Luther Church of the Redeemer brought together multiple faiths and multiple generations, ranging from Northern Virginia Girls Scouts, Boys Scouts and McLean Little Leaguers to World War II veterans from American Legion Post 270 in McLean.

The event raised more than $37,500 – or 25 cents a meal – from individuals, organizations and corporations to help eradicate hunger.
