75,000 meals packed during Feed the Need event


A BIG THANK YOU to everyone who participated in the Feed the Need food packing event. Your contributions and hard work paid off. We packed 75,000 meals - that translates into 430 boxes containing 10 Family Packs each. Each box contains 12,900 meals - a combination of Oatmeal, Mac & Cheese and Pasta & Tomato Sauce. Each Family Pack also contains boxes of raisins, cheese crackers, and peanut butter crackers. All this means we packaged 75,000 meals which included 17,200 boxes of raisins, 8,600 cheese cracker packages and 8,600 peanut butter cracker packages. The boxes have been distributed to six community food banks.

Rev. Cecil Williams from Gregg Chapel said, "I along with the Stewards of Gregg Chapel AME Church would like to thank each of you for allowing us to partner with you in this wonderful display of love. High commendations to the family at St. Simon's for bringing the entire community together for such a great cause. It had to be the greatest event held in the city! Good on you!"

Ken Winzeler, President of the Board of Directors of Sharing and Caring said, "In my 32 years in the Ft Walton Beach area, I have never been associated with a more thorough, organized and caring group that today's Feed the Need (FTN) project. FTN has brought out the best with so many diverse segments of our community who cheerfully worked together for a common cause. St. Simon's initiative to bring FTN to our city took creativity and persistence, and today's success reflects your tireless efforts.”

Once again, a BIG THANK YOU. Stay tuned for future plans.
