The Feed My Starving Children food packing event is growing larger every year.

Organizers for the third-annual event in Morris said volunteers surpassed its goal of 200,000 meals. The meal total reached 215,000 when volunteers had to stop because they ran out of packing boxes.


More than 1,100 people volunteered to pack meals, which are distributed to starving people in Haiti, said organizer Tamala Sperr.
