Reaching a Goal with Quail Valley Elementary

by Thor Ramsey

Last Thursday, Center Church along with the students and teachers and many parents of Quail Valley Elementary School packaged 20,000 meals that will feed up to 100,000 kids in Malawi, Africa.

One of the kids said to Dinika, "This is a lot more fun than I thought it was going to be." There's already discussion of making this an annual event.

We're so thankful to all the Center Church volunteers who helped with the event by supervising a packing table full of children from kindergarten through fifth grade. We couldn't have done it without you. The folks from Center Church included Paul and Juanita Robles, Robert and Jack Gray, Patsy Boruff, and my wonderful wife Dinika.

Below are some photos that Juanita Robles and Dinika took of the day.

Patsy Boruff is measuring a bag to make sure it's between 390 and 395 grams.

Paul's sealing a bag that's been filled with all four ingredients: rice blend, soy mix, freeze dried veggies and a seasoning packet.

Here's a view of the assembly lines. There were twelve stations of approximately eight kids per table.

The final product will feed between six and eight children.

From 8:30 a.m. until 11:30 a.m. we stacked one and a half pallets of meals, which is equal to 20,000 of them. That's me with Principal Pena.
