POSTPONED ~Kids Fighting Hunger - Fight the Famine

A Food Packaging Event for Somalia


 The organizing committee for the Fight the Famine food packaging event that was tentatively scheduled to be held later this summer has announced that the July 27 activity is being postponed to a later date. Organizers will continue to work to raise resources locally to support the initiative and, it is hoped, target efforts at both fighting the famine in Africa as well as supplying needed resources to the area food shelves.

A portion of the resources raised to date will immediately be used to ship a container of food, packaged and donated by Kids Fighting Hunger, to Somalia. As additional resources become available through fundraising efforts and foundation support, these will be targeted toward the future event. The Fighting the Famine organizing committee – including representatives from Kids Fighting Hunger, United Way of Central Minnesota, Central Minnesota Community Foundation, and Better Together – remain committed to the effort and are hopeful that a fall food packaging event can take place.

Pitch in. Give back. Join us.
