FMSC Packing Event

Over the weekend our church hosted a mobile packing event for Feed My Starving Children and Janice, Kyleigh and I did a two-hour shift.  Our shift packed about 25,000 meals in 118 cases feeding 69 children for an entire year.  
 All five shifts together packed about 127,000 meals in 590 cases feeding 348 children for one year.  Note our fashionable hair accessories.

Janice scooped two of the ingredients using a tablespoon and another lady scooped two other ingredients with a coffee cup.  Kyleigh's friend, Aubrey and her mom held the bags under a funnel and then weighed them and added/subtracted rice to meet a specified weight range.  Kyleigh and I were the bag sealers.  I placed the bag in the sealer and Kyleigh operated the sealer.   Kyleigh did switch off with Aubrey periodically because being a bag sealer was kind of boring for an eight year old.
If you have a chance to participate in one of these mobile packing events, go for it!
