The volunteers who came out this weekend packaged 55,000 meals to help feed starving children. One of the organizers said she is happy to be making a difference.

“After we started the program of educating the children and went to visit the schools, we saw that the children had nothing to eat and I’m an educator, I teach here at Coastal. I have taught all my life and you can’t teach a child who is hungry,” Hope Changes Everything Founder Renee Hunter said.

The meals will be feeding kids in schools five days a week. Hunter said the program started five years ago and hopes it continues to grow.
