Join over 700 volunteers to pack 150,000 meals for the world’s hungry

Church volunteers will pack meals to send to starving children this weekend, and you can help.

Just before friends and family gather to watch the Superbowl in the comforts of their homes with food aplenty, more than 700 community members will gather in Short Pump and work to feed thousands of starving children who have never experienced such a privilege.

Through a partnership between Gayton Baptist Church and Feed My Starving Children, volunteers will prepare 150,000 meals on Saturday and Sunday at Gayton Baptist Church.

It was all made possible by the church’s immensely popular Jazz Nativity, an annual musical celebration of the Nativity that garnered over $24,000 in proceeds in December.

The approach is simple–volunteers hand pack meals designed specifically for starving children, and the organization then ships the meals to nearly 70 countries around the world. Each meal costs a mere 22¢ to produce.

The church is still seeking volunteers to help pack meals. If you’d like to help, or simply make a financial contribution to the project, visit the Gayton Baptist Church website.
