Food for Kidz
Thirteen tables with eight to ten volunteers at each table, packed close to 80,000 meals at the Food for Kidz event Saturday in Wendell. Sponsored by the Grant County Lions Clubs, the event brought volunteers from many communities in our area to pack nutritious meals of beans, rice and dried vegetables, and oatmeal, to which only hot water is added to make a meal. They will be used in Central and South America as meals during times of shortage or disasters. Many of the oatmeal packages are distributed around the upper Midwest to help families in need.
