Santa Fe Christian School students, parents and faculty, Friends & Family Community Connection and sailors from the USS RONALD REAGAN packed meals on Nov. 21 and 22 to help feed the victims of Super Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines.  More than 2 million people are in need of food in the aftermath of the typhoon, according to the Philippine government.

Food packages included a variety of staples, including rice, soy meal, dried vegetables and vitamin supplements.  Friends & Family Connection also provided more than 1,000 water filters and a variety of toiletry, hygiene and over-the-counter medications along with the meals.

SFC students earned money to purchase the raw supplies for the food packages.  Each food package costs one quarter so by collecting quarters, students could correlate their earnings to individual meals.  The Philippines food packaging effort is part of SFC’s annual ‘Give Thanks, Give Back’ school wide service project.

Friends & Family Community Connection and their partners have purchased, packaged, and shipped over nine million meals to San Diego County, Haiti & Tanzania, Africa, New York, New Jersey, Oklahoma, Japan, Honduras and Mexico.
