Summer of Service Packing Event for Philippines
Cornerstone Fellowship's "Summer of Service" had a goal to feed 100,000 hungry children in the Philippines but did even more! 115,128 meals were packed by over 600 people this weekend!! Our shipment went out to the Philippines today and should arrive in about 3 weeks to International Care Ministries in Bacolod City.
International Care Ministries
Once our food leaves the warehouse our partners pick it up at the international destination and deliver it to the families and children in need. One of our partners, International Care Ministries, distributes KAH food to ultra-poor families in the Philippines. You can find more about them at http://www.caremin.com/
A big thank you to ICM for all the work they are doing in the Philippines! A container with over 237,000 meals will be on the way to you by the end of the month.
Food 4 Thought
Second Harvest Food Bank picked up 59,400 meals today to be used in their Food 4 Thought program. Kids that participate in their summer program receive tutoring, participate in physical activities and are given a bag of groceries to bring home.
