Local volunteers have united in the fight against hunger.
Lutheran Church of the Covenant (LCOC) and the Woodbridge Rotary Club packed almost 34,000 meals.
More than 140 community members created the packets at the annual meal packing program on Saturday.
They contained rice, soy, dehydrated vegetables and vitamins, according to Event Coordinator Patti Beattie.
Rise Against Hunger, a global non-profit, will distribute the food to hungry children and families who are living in another country.
Last year, participants packed 32,000 meals. LCOC and individuals from area organizations have created more than 102,000 packets since the event began five years ago.
