During the four-day Woodbury Feed My Starving Childen MobilePack event Oct. 8-11, some 60 employees of the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis joined hundreds of volunteers to pack 4,066,200 meals — enough to feed 11,140 children for an entire year.

Archbishop Bernard Hebda and Bishop Andrew Cozzens were among the chancery volunteers, and the archbishop blessed the food at the end of the opening-day packing session.

The protein-filled meals of rice, soy, vitamins, minerals and dehydrated vegetables are specially formulated for malnourished children.

Feed My Starving Children is a non-profit Christian organization. Meals have fed the hungry in nearly 70 countries around the world to date.
