Event hopes to yield 100,000 bagged meals

The Richardson Interfaith Alliance, in partnership with The Richardson Chamber, is hoping to prepare 100,000 meals to distribute in the community and internationally. We need your help to make it happen.

On Sunday, Sept. 10, a Feeding Children Everywhere meal bagging event will be held from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. at the Richardson Civic Center. Individuals from local houses of worship, corporate entities, non-profit organizations and neighborhoods are needed to make a local as well as international impact on hunger.

“The wonderful thing about this event is that all ages can participate. Last year our kids learned about the needs that were being addressed, and they could see the fruits of their work as those bags of food piled up,” said Saint Luke's Lutheran Church Reverend Kristine Totzke. “The added bonus was that we joined in this activity with a diverse group of people from various faiths. This was a fun activity, an educational opportunity, an excellent service project, and a great relationship-building event!"
