  • We congratulate the churches and volunteers in Crookston and Polk County that shared in the April 5-7, 2013 packaging of 427,680 meals for starvation-impacted children in the Greater Grand Forks 'Feed My Starving Children' drive.
    Of those meals, 272,160 went to the Convoy of Hope in the Philippines. We were pleased to learn that the Convoy of Hope is a major organization providing meals for needy people following the terrible hurricane that destroyed villages and killed around 3,000 people.
    We don't know if the meals packed in the Grand Forks region were directly involved in the Convoy of Hope distribution but we are happy to report that meals packed right here in the Valley region are available to feed starving children in natural disasters.
    The remaining 155,520 meals packed last year went to Haiti where recovery from the devastating earthquake lags and the need for emergency food continues.
    Churches and volunteers in Crookston and Polk County are urged to join us again in raising $88,000 for ingredients and packing 400,000 meals on April 4-6 in the Grand Forks Public Works Building.
    We are packing meals that are saving lives.
