GREECE, N.Y. One group is doing its part to feed hungry kids.

800 local volunteers came together to fight hunger and help out children around the world. The group Feed My Starving Children says every year millions of kids die from malnutrition.

So it held a food packaging event at Lakeshore Community Church in Greece. Lakeshore’s pastor talked to us about why the event is so important.

“We want to show God’s love to as many people as we possibly can and we can especially do it to people who are in desperate need because of Covid and because of the worldwide things that are happening,” said Vince Dipaola, senior pastor at Lakeshore Community Church. “So many more people are acutely hungry. Today, we struggle with inflation. Many people around the world struggle with starvation.”

It’s been doing this for 11 years. In that time it’s packaged more than 2 million meals.
