On May 29th Food For Kidz sent an entire semi load of bulk food to Spokane, Washington from Stewart, Minnesota in anticipation of opening an office and warehouse there. Upon arrival on the 31st, 21 pallets of bulk food equaling 300,000 meals were unloaded into a warehouse.
A total of 10 volunteers and the owner John Neisen of Food For Kidz immediately set up two packing lines in preparation for creating meals that night. This ensured meals could go out to those in need the following day. As music played in the background one volunteer was overheard saying, “This feels really good to give back and help those in need! We want to do this again.”.
In just 1.5 hours 1,297 meals were created and packed. The following day, HRC Ministries of Spokane, WA distributed the food to two local schools and one food bank.
