Kids Against Hunger holds packing event

More than a quarter of a million meals will go to refugees

EAST MOLINE, Ill. - Food is going to be sent overseas to help feed refugees.

It's all thanks to hundreds of volunteers at the East Moline Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. 

The church teamed up with Kids Against Hunger to package up more than 250,000 meals to send to Lebanon. 

Volunteers included dozens of teams, one of them was a local boy scout troupe. 

"You see all these things across the world talking about these refugees and what their living conditions are and I wanted to help out, and once I heard this project was going into motion, I hopped on board and said what can I do?" said Boy Scout Seth Hamby. 

This is the second time Kids Against Hunger has sent meals overseas.

The next project will be in November if you want to help refugees this winter.
