Thousands of volunteers in Frisco help pack meals to feed hungry children

Thousands of North Texas volunteers are helping feed hungry children.

Volunteers are working at Stonebriar Community Church in Frisco Friday and Saturday to hand pack 1 million meals in partnership with the Feed My Starving Children organization.

The meals are formulated to help reverse malnutrition and provide key nutrients that children need to thrive.

"It’s a great way for a church to get involved and pull people in from the community that may not otherwise come through the doors here at Stonebriar,” volunteer Jake Howard said. “It’s a way for businesses to get together with church, a way for new people to meet each other and learn how to serve a community in need. "

Stonebriar Community Church officials said they plan on having 5,000 volunteers help with the food-packing operation.
