ROXBURY, N.J. - Assembly line work isn't what most people consider fun. But the people who volunteered their time recently to work at an "assembly line" to package meals for the needy had a good time doing it.
More than 50 people, including children and teens, participated in the Oct. 29 event at Succasunna United Methodist Church. They stood side-by-side and packaged meals for Stop Hunger Now, an organization dedicated to ending global hunger.
The volunteers packaged meals for two hours. In that time, they bagged more than 10,000 meals of rice, beans vegetables and vitamins.
Stop Hunger Now, established in 1998, has provided more than 225 million meals in 74 countries.
