Another 30,000 life-saving meals are on their way to feed starving people in Venezuela, which is in the midst of a crushing recession.
Empty store shelves and hospitals short on medicine have driven people to desperation. The situation is so dire that some have even resorted to killing pink flamingos and other protected animals in order to stave off hunger.
The 30,000 meals were packed by volunteers this Saturday at Feeding Children Everywhere’s headquarters in Central Florida. The Hunger Project was organized by an engaged couple who wanted to do something to help their family and others living in the South American country.
What kind of impact are these meals having?
Recently, we donated 9,500 meals to a small church there. Every Sunday the church serves “Meals Ready to Eat” for their members and any visitors. Our Red Lentil Jambalaya has become more of a regular part of those Sunday meals.
Thank you, Hunger Heroes, for the role you’ve played in packaging meals. Know that your contribution is doing so much to help hungry people in Venezuela and around the world.
