California Latter-day Saints Help “Stop Hunger Now”

Orange County, California, members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints joined with Stop Hunger Now to prepare and package 100,000 meals on 26 April.

More than 800 Mormon Helping Hands volunteers, including politicians and people of other faiths, came together with the community as they met in a Latter-day Saint meetinghouse in Rancho Santa Margarita.

Willing adults and excited children in yellow Mormon Helping Hands vests worked together, packaging a variety of food in boxes that were shipped to children in need around the world.

Stop Hunger Now is a nonprofit organization that ships food and supplies to school meal programs and orphanages worldwide. To date, more than 141 million meals have been distributed to needy children in over 65 countries.
