PANAMA CITY - An international organization is stopping in Panama City Saturday to give locals the opportunity to stop world hunger.
More than 40,000 volunteers helped the St. Andrews United Methodist Church host its first Stop-Hunger-Now package event. Each meal-bag is filled with a vitamin package, soy flour, vegetables and rice.
Since its inception, the Stop-Hunger-Now organization has delivered more than $56 million worth of aid and more than 59 million meals all around the world.
Peggy Kundo from the St. Andrews United Methodist Church said, "We learned about the program and felt that it would meet the needs of women and children in communities through out the world. And our purpose in United Methodist Women is mission. So we felt it was very consisted with our purpose."
The organization packaged 10,000 meals in two hours Saturday.
