EUGENE, Ore.-- The Northpark Community Church is looking for about 100 volunteers to help pack meals for children who don't have enough food to eat.

It's all part of a program the church is involved in, called Generosity Feeds.
 
Volunteers will gather on Saturday, April 28th at 10 a.m. to pack more than 12,000 meals in about two hours. It'll happen at Bertha Holt Elementary School. Then, the meals will be given to children in Eugene and Springfield.

KEZI 9 News met with Pastor Aaron Box. "We're around 50, 53 percent of all our K-12 kids in Lane County depend on our school system for their breakfast and lunch. We believe it's pretty easy when people come together to make direct impact," he said.

Organizers are asking volunteers to register so they know how many people to expect.
