Volunteers will fill high-protein meal bags, which include rice, soy, dehydrated vegetables and a flavoring mix with 23 essential vitamins and minerals. The international relief organization provides millions of nutritious meals and other life-saving aid to families all over the world. "Help us raise $11,600 and pack 40,000 meals!" exclaimed Quinney.

A donation of $25.00 provides approximately 86 meals.
