Nappanee Missionary Church hosts its annual Feed My Starving Children event
ELKHART COUNTY —
Thousands of volunteers in Elkhart County are coming together to help children across the globe.
The Nappanee Missionary Church is hosting its 8th annual Feed My Starving Children event.
Volunteers will try and pack more than 2 million meals in four days.
Each year nearly 8,000 people come together to reach that goal.
“It’s been exciting to see people get behind it. And all the way from someone maybe 5-years-old to someone last year 102-years-old, and to see those generations come together for a common cause is so exciting,” said Dave Engbrecht, Nappanee Missionary Church pastor.
At the end of the packing blitz, the church is able to provide food to 75 local pantries and send nutritious meals to millions of hungry children.
