The Outreach Program of Brainerd Lakes (formerly Kids Against Hunger-Brainerd Lakes Area) conducted a mobile packing event with Lutheran Church of the Cross in Nisswa on Sunday, Nov. 24.

There were 148 volunteers from the church helping to pack. Four packing lines were set up, two with apple cinnamon oatmeal, one with minestrone soup and one with beans and rice.

Together, the church packed 6,048 meals in one hour. The event was conducted on Global Missions Sunday and coordinated by the Global Mission Team at Lutheran Church of the Cross.

The oatmeal and minestrone soup will be used for Operation Sandwich's Christmas break program, and the beans and rice will be shipped to Haiti for international food aid.
