Stop Hunger Now Packing Event to be Held Nov 15 at MHS

The Monrovia Rotary Club and MHS Interact Club will be holding a Stop Hunger Now food packing event at Monrovia High School on November 11, 2014 to assemble over 12,000 meals to help support ongoing school feeding programs that sustain lifelong change.

Stop Hunger Now is an international hunger relief agency that has been fulfilling its commitment to end hunger for more than 15 years.   Since 1998, the organization has coordinated the distribution of food and other lifesaving aid to children and families in countries all over the world.

Stop Hunger Now created its meal packaging program, in 2005. The program perfected the assembly process that combines rice, soy, dehydrated vegetables and a flavoring mix including 21 essential vitamins and minerals into small meal packets. Each meal costs only 29 cents. The food stores easily, has a shelf-life of two years and transports quickly. Stop Hunger Now works with international partners that ship and distribute the meals in-country.

The event will be held from 9am to noon in the MHS Gym and should prove to be immensely fun, hands-on, and rewarding for people of all ages.
