Grand Forks, ND (WDAY TV) -- More than 400-thousand meals are being packaged right now in Grand Forks all for a good cause.

This is the 3rd annual Feed My Starving Children Mobile Pack event. This year, the group will reach its goal of packaging more than one million meals.

It takes about $90-thousand dollars in fundraising to make this possible.

Each meal contains rice, soy, dried vegetables, vitamins and minerals.

The meals are shipped to 3rd world countries like Haiti.

Jodie Storhaug with the event says, "The children that eat these meals, this is like their one meal a day. They otherwise wouldn't get food. And this one meal a day, they'll thrive and grow on."

Another round of volunteers will be packing meals all day tomorrow as well.
