Pioneer Ocean View United Church of Christ on Track to Pack 15,000 Meals for Hungry
1 in 5 children living in San Diego are at risk of hunger, according to Feeding America San Diego. Pioneer Ocean View United Church of Christ, located off Clairemont Drive, plans to do something about it.
On September 12th, from 9:30-12, members and friends of Pioneer Ocean View United Church of Christ will team up with international non-profit organization “Feeding Children Everywhere” to pack 15,000 nutritious meals for local families
Since the beginning of the year, the church has been raising money to pay for the food and packaging supplies that will be used during the event. In addition to money raised by the church, organizers received a grant from the Clairemont Town Council that will also help pay for supplies.
At least 100 volunteers are needed to help pack the food. Volunteers will work assembly line style to measure dry ingredients that will go into a nutritious lentil based casserole.
Members of the community are invited to help pack meals. If you are interested in helping, please contact the church at (619) 276-4881 by September 8th to secure a space. No experience is necessary, just a willingness to make a difference!
