Parishioners at Our Lady of Sorrows(OLS) Catholic Church are excited about their part in a mission to put a dent in world hunger. The last weekend in February food packing assembly stations were set up in the Family Life Center and church members worked together to help Rise Against Hunger,an international hunger relief non-profit organization,aid starving and malnourished children. On February 23 parishioners of all ages, including Cub Scouts, worked to prepare meal packages during three two-hour shifts. On the afternoon of February 24, the Confirmation class of the Parish School of Religion prepared 16,000 packages as a service project. That night, 60 high school and middle school youth group members assembled several thousand meals. In all, OLS packaged 80,000 nutritious meals containing soy, dehydrated vegetables, rice, and vitamins. One bag can feed six children. The goal of the project is to support Rise Against Hunger’s goal to end hunger by the year 2030.
