You helped package more than 20,000 meals!
Thank you to over 200 volunteers who came out on Sunday, October 9, 2016 to pack over 20,000 nutritious, dehydrated meals for the international hunger-relief organization Stop Hunger Now.
We are delighted to announce that the meals from Reveille's meal packaging event were shipped in a container totaling 285,120 meals from the Richmond, VA warehouse. The meals were received by an in-country partner, Convoy of Hope in Nicaragua.
Convoy of Hope, a 501(c)3 faith-based nonprofit, has served more than 55 million people throughout the world through international children's feeding initiatives, community outreaches, disaster response and partner resourcing. This container of meals will go to Convoy of Hope's programs in Nicaragua. These meals will support schools across the country through their ongoing feeding program in the Latin America Child Care schools (LACC). This initiative was started in 2007 and Convoy of Hope is currently currently feeding 6,345 children at 40 feeding sites. For more information on Convoy of hope, please visit their website.
