Jasper County meal packaging event is Oct. 14

On Oct. 14, the Jasper County Take Away Hunger will package food to be sent to parts of the world to feed families where there is a shortage of food.

In the past years more than 500,000 meals have been packaged to send to countries such as Nicaragua, Honduras, Haiti and also here in Iowa.

The host for the Oct. 14 packaging will be the Holy Trinity Lutheran Church, 1409 S. Eighth Ave. E. in Newton. Gather a team of 12 and collect $360 in donations. Then come to help us package the food to help feed the hungry people around the world.

All are welcome, such as churches, service clubs, businesses, scout troops, and individuals who would be willing to come to help with the packaging event. Deadline for registering of a team or individual who is willing to work with others is Oct 7.

Contact Bill Bennett at jaspercountytakeawayhunger@gmail.com to register or to receive more information about the event.
