On Thursday December 10, 2020 Feed The Hunger Katy reached a milestone by packing 1 Million Meals in 2020.
Feed the Hunger is a Christian mission organization that helps people in spiritual and physical need. Headquartered in North Carolina, Feed the Hunger equips their members to feed spiritual hunger with tools like Bibles, bicycles, and micro-enterprise projects. Physical hunger is met through the provision of nutritious food, clean water, and emergency aid and relief. We seek to meet these needs in three target audiences:
(1) at-risk children in America and overseas,
(2) those in crisis situations, such as refugees and victims of natural disasters, and
(3) ethnic groups that are just beginning to be reached with the message of Jesus.
Regina Alexander- Packathon Coordinator, along with a team of dedicated volunteers and committee members here in Katy, TX that made it their goal to pack 1 Million Meals in 2020. The meals they have packed have not only been shipped all over the globe, but have made a huge impact right here locally in the Katy community. By providing meals to other nonprofits in the area including Katy Christian Ministries, Hope Impacts, Compassion Katy, Attack Poverty, Eyes on Me, and Children Like Loni, they have been able to bless thousands of needy families with healthy meals and spiritual needs.
They are not stopping there.
They have another Social Distance packathon coming up Feb 25 – 28, 2021 where they hope to pack upwards of 600,000 more meals. Feed the Hunger is allowing families to come together to participate in a “Mission Trip” in your own backyard.
“Hunger has no ears,” so people have a difficult time hearing the Gospel when they are hungry. A Packathon is a two-hour, hands-on service opportunity for anyone ages 5 to 105. It is a truly rewarding event and will bring people together in a way your community may have never seen before.
