More than a 1000 volunteers came together to help end hunger in Wisconsin with a 24 hour food packing event. 

   The Feeding America Eastern Wisconsin event started at 10 am and ran through 11 am on Saturday.

   Over 200,000 pounds of rice will now be passed out to those in need in Northeastern Wisconsin . Volunteers packed 3 lb pound bags of rice. According to event organizers one bag of rice goes a long way, if fact it can feed a family of four for a week. 

If you missed out on Saturday’s event volunteer opportunities are still available at Feeding America Eastern Wisconsin.
