A nutritious meal received in a Haitian school might be a child’s only meal for the day. Through Mission of Hope’s nutrition program, thousands of school children are given a warm meal everyday. This meal is promoting a healthy school and a healthy child in the midst of the food insecurity crisis in Haiti right now.
On average, 40,000 meals provides nutrition for one school for an entire year. Hot, nutritious meals are changing the lives of the children attending school. These children are the next generation of leaders in their nation, and a nutritious meal at school will affect the success of their education in a positive way.
Meal packing events make this possible by assembling a large number of meals at one time. Numana Inc. facilitates large-scale packaging events, where people gather to assemble meals for organizations like Mission of Hope. One package includes six meals. On May 18, volunteers from Forest Hill Church in North Carolina gathered together to package 40,000 meals to be delivered to Haiti.
Alex, a 13-year-old who packed meals said, “I woke up at 5:30 am so I could help set up the Numana event with my friend. I had such a fun time and asked the church how I can be more involved and hopefully go to Haiti on a Mission trip one day.”
“Our campus experienced wonderful community and multi-generational time together while we packed meals with Numana for Mission of Hope. The event was a special day for our church body that sparked a desire to serve locally. We are excited to see where this love for others takes our congregation as we strive to impact our community with the hope of the Gospel,” said Julie Sale, a Forest Hill member.
A meal packing event can have a significant impact in the lives of children in Haiti, and we’re grateful for all who make it possible. If you’re interested in hosting a meal packing event, you can email email@example.com and we’ll get in contact with you.
