Liquid Church, a New Jersey-based megachurch, will be packing 1 million meals to help combat global hunger as part of its annual “Christmas Outreach” program.
Around 6,100 volunteers will be packing the meals on Friday and Saturday.
Brooke LeMunyon, communications coordinator at Liquid Church, told The Christian Post that they’re partnering with the Christian nonprofit Feed My Starving Children for the project.
“We know there is tangible life change when a malnourished, hungry child has access to a nutritious meal,” LeMunyon said. “By partnering with Feed My Starving Children, we know these meals will impact children and communities in desperate need.”
Each meal, known as a “MannaPack,” contains nutritional ingredients, including what the nonprofit organization refers to as “MannaPack Rice,” which has carbohydrates, protein, and other key nutrients.
Other fortified food items include “MannaPack Potato-D” that assists with oral rehydration and replenishing lost nutrients, and “MannaPack Potato-W,” which, according to a 2017 Feed My Starving Children article, “complements breastfeeding and acts as a crucial supplement for children whose mothers don’t have access to the vital nutrition their babies desperately need to grow and develop.”
LeMunyon told CP that the outreach effort was part of Liquid’s goal to “saturate the state with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.”
