Between Friday, March 23 and Sunday, March 25, 600 members of and volunteers with the Ray of Hope Christian Church in Decatur will pack over 100,000 meals for children facing hunger.

The service opportunity comes through a partnership between the church and the nonprofit Feed My Starving Children (FMSC), a Christian organization that “tackles world hunger” by sending hand-packed meals to orphanages, schools and clinics in 70 countries, according to an FMSC press release.

Last year, FMSC volunteers packed over 284 million meals, feeding over 700,000 kids daily for a year, the release said.

The event will take place at the church, located at 2778 Snapfinger Road in Decatur. For more information, visit the church’s website.
