By Taysha Woods, Reporter
NORTH LIBERTY, Iowa- A church youth group in North Liberty has made it possible to feed 50,000 people through Kids Against Hunger. Holy Trinity Lutheran Church (HTLC) hosted the event Saturday with 420 volunteers.
The youth group at HTLC have raised nearly $14,000 towards purchasing ingredients to prepare, package and ship these meals to starving people.
The meals include soy and rice. They have been specially prepared according to nutritional experts to restart the digestive system of malnourished individuals.
50,000 meals have been packaged and boxed up, some of which will be sent to local pantries in the area. The rest will be joined with "One nation, One day," an organization set to end starvation in Honduras.
Nationally, Kids Against Hunger plan to send one million of these meals to the "One nation, One day" project in Honduras.
