Packaging food for those in need

ROCHESTER, Minn. – A southern Minnesota organization is hoping to feed starving children in the Congo.

Lighthouse God’s Food in Rochester is hoping to package 300,000 meals to send overseas, but they do need volunteers. The shifts usually last a couple hours Monday through Saturday. “We generally take church groups, especially youth groups. It’s a great opportunity for them to learn about what’s going on around the world, and how things are different than in Rochester,” Volunteer Organizer, Nils Peterson said. The group is hoping to complete the project by Christmas.

The group is located at 4545 North Frontage Road-Highway 14 (West) and their number is 507-288-2898
