Parishioners and friends of Saint John Fisher Roman Catholic Church, hard at work packaging 23,000 meals to help feed the hungry of Burkina Faso. This land-locked country has recurring drought, pervasive and perennial food insecurity, and limited natural resources resulting in poor economic prospects for the majority of its citizens. Over 150 people gathered together, taking just a few short hours to package so many meals. Our original goal was to raise enough funds for 10,000 meals yet we all came together to more than double our goal!
