During the months of March and April, Grace Point Church collected donations from church members, the local community and corporate partners, to cover the $37,500 cost of the raw materials for the meals. At the event, volunteers packaged 150,000 meals that will be sent to Honduras to feed children in the poorest barrios of San Pedro Sula.

On April 29, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., church members will work alongside members of the local community to package the food.

Friends & Family Community Connection (“FFCC”) fights hunger both in San Diego County and across the world. As of August 2011, FFCC volunteers and contributors have purchased, packaged, and shipped over 3.3 million meals to Tanzania, Africa, 1.3 million meals to Haiti, 500,000 meals to Mexico, 100,000 to Japan, and also distributed 600,000 meals to local families in need.
