Woodbury makes 4 million meals for Feed My Starving Children


There were a whole lot of cheers as one little brown box was brought forward to the stage during Sunday's Woodbury Feed My Starving Children MobilePack event. It might not have looked like much from the outside, but its contents included something special.

That little brown box contained the 4 millionth meal packed by Woodbury and area volunteers over the course of four days. And while people were pretty excited about meeting the goal of packing 4 million meals, they went on for another 20 minutes and packed even more.

By the time all wrapped up Sunday, Woodbury's Feed My Starving Children MobilePack event resulted in 4,066,200 meals. Those meals are enough to feed 11,140 children for an entire year.
