Duluthians Fight World Hunger

Created: 01/18/2014 6:23 PM WDIO.com

In just hours hundreds of volunteers helped make a dent in world hunger on Saturday at the Salem Covenant Church in Duluth.

Over 300 people turned out to support the non-profit Kids Against Hunger. With steady and speedy hands they measured out the rice mixture to create 75,000 meals for children around the world.

The group's chairwoman, Cindee Johnson, said the event was dynamic because the volunteers were so passionate.

“It's such a wonderful event. It's really vibrant. It's a good use of a short amount of time and it goes so far, does so much,” Johnson said.

The group raised $15,000 to buy the supplies. This was the third year the church has hosted the event.
