Would you like to help stop world hunger? Volunteers are needed join the cause at the “Stop Hunger Now” meal-packing project in Smyrna on Saturday, March 4 from 9 a.m. to 12 noon at the Smyrna-Clayton Boys and Girls Club, 240 E. Commerce St.

Kenton United Methodist Church and Asbury United Methodist Church, with help from the Smyrna-Clayton Ministerium, are partnering with the non-profit Stop Hunger Now organization which provides nourishing meals and other aid to children in poverty-stricken areas around the world.

The organization has provided more than 300 million meals in 74 countries during times of crisis such as a natural disaster, war or famine, along with serving as a safety net for schools and clinics in need of nutritious meals. Stop Hunger Now also helps with agricultural education to improve agricultural methods in poverty-stricken countries. This program is vital to reducing world hunger in our lifetime and Delaware is doing its part.

The goal of organizers of the Smyrna event is to package 20,000 meals in three hours.

Anyone who would like to partner with this great cause by volunteering time or financial support, please contact Joshua Barth at jbarth1235@gmail.com or Cilla Ricker at (302) 653-4497 for more information.
