ConAgra Employees Help At Food Pantry

Trenton ConAgra Foods, Inc. and BCTGM Local #194g sponsored a “Kids Against Hunger” volunteer event on Wednesday, May 4, hosted by the Community Food Pantry of Grundy County. Over 40 volunteers packaged 16,167 meals in three hours. Kids Against Hunger is a nonprofit humanitarian organization that works with volunteers in a hands on service activity that benefits families locally and around the world. The organization packages four dry food ingredients (rice, soy, black beans and spices, and vitamin mineral powder) purchased with donated monies. When mixed with water, these ingredients make a fortified rice and protein casserole. This food product has been scientifically formulated to reverse the starvation process of those in malnourished conditions. There are six meals in each package. One box of food contains 216 meals, which will feed a child in a third world country for six months. The meals packaged at this event will be used in Grundy County and shared with surrounding counties.
