Los Gatos, Saratoga Teens Package Meals for Stop Hunger Now

More than 10,000 packages are assembled Saturday at Los Gatos United Methodist Church.

More than 40 Los Gatos and Saratoga high schoolers gathered at Los Gatos United Methodist Church Saturday, Nov. 17 to package 10,000 meals for Stop Hunger Now, an organization that seeks to end world hunger in our lifetime.

The event was organized by Amanda Agrimonti, president of the Stop Hunger Now Club at Los Gatos High School and an active youth at Los Gatos United Methodist Church. The Club wants to package 285,000 meals by June 2013.

The meals were packaged in a fun way inside the church's social hall. Four components were added to each package: essential vitamins, soy protein, dehydrated vegetables, and rice, said Los Gatos United Methodist Church youth director Anthony Fatta.

Each bag contains six meals, which are sent to schools in developing nations to ensure that lunches are provided to children. The assistance makes their parents more likely to send them to school, Fatta explained.
