On July 28, 2018, Daybreak-ers joined dozens of volunteers at the Berean Bible Church in Pottstown for two hours to pack meals for children in need. The event is one of many such meal-packing events held across the country. The sponsoring organization is "Feed My Starving Children", fmsc.org
Collectively, at the event, all of us (not just Daybreak) felt great about the results:
...which feeds 119 children for a year.
Two more packing shifts were scheduled for the same day... imagine the impact on the children in need!
Meal packing starts with rice in giant bags on pallets...
... to which are added dehydrated vegetables, protein powder and vitamins. The components are measured ...
...and the mixture weighed and packaged in plastic pouches ...
... the pouches heat-sealed, then boxed and stacked.
Relief kits provide valuable supplies to families whose lives have been disrupted by war or disaster. We are partnering with mcc.org
