CONWAY, Ark. (KTHV) -- For every one meal purchased, another meal goes to a hungry child. That's the concept at Conway's Pitza 42 pizza joint.
The strategy is simple; Pitza 42 will donate the funds necessary to Feed My Starving Childrento purchase one meal for every meal that is sold in the restaurant.
In essence, every meal is for two people.
Pitza 42 is sponsoring a Mobile Pack Event where volunteers will gather to pack 100,000+ meals to help feed hungry children all over the world.
"We'll be packing what's called a Manna Pack," says Pitza 42 co-owner Ashton Samuelson."It's a scientifically formulated meal of rice, soy protein, dehydrated vegetables and chicken flavoring. It's made to take a child who is extrememly malnourished to be a healthy functioning normal kid again."
The mobile pack will be held next Friday and Saturday, April 13th and 14th at Second Baptist Student Center in Conway. Participants are asked to reserve a spotonlineby Sunday, April 8.
Feed My Starving Childrenis a non-profit Christian organization committed to feeding God's children hungry in body and spirit. The approach is simple: children and adults hand-pack meals specifically formulated for malnourished children, and we ship the meals to nearly 70 countries around the world.
