Church packages relief meals

There was no music, no message and no offering on May 7 at Coffee Creek Baptist Church, 1650 NW 220. The church canceled services, and volunteers donated their time and money to help alleviate hunger in Oklahoma and around the world.

In two hours, participants packaged more than 12,000 meals for Kids Against Hunger, a global hunger relief organization. Each meal contained white rice, textured soy protein, six dehydrated vegetables, chicken flavoring and 21 vitamins and minerals.

“Our mission at Coffee Creek is to love God and do good. We desire to live in a way that benefits our community, metro OKC, our nation and the world,” said the Rev. Clark Frailey, pastor. “We believe following Jesus is about making positive contributions in the here and now.”

The meals Coffee Creek packaged will be used to feed children around the globe as well as in local crisis and disaster relief situations such as the recent Quapaw tornado, where Kids Against Hunger delivered meal packets to tornado victims.

Kids Against Hunger is a 501(3)(c) organization founded in 1999 that provides nutritious, life-saving meals to starving children in developing countries and the United States.
