Coon Rapids, Minn - Feed My Starving Children today announced the three Lenten dates they will offer Fully Invested meal packing sessions for those interested in making a $50 donation. This fee covers he price of ingredients for one box of food -- the average amount per person produces in a packing session.
As a Christian-based charitable organization, Feed My Starving Children had traditionally closed on holidays like Easter to observe the religious event. This year following the success and satisfaction found at last year's invested session, they will continue the holiday tradition and offer an additional packing option on the first Sunday of Lent.

“During Lent, Christian believers often set aside time to prepare their hearts for Easter and reflect on the life of Jesus Christ, who paid the ultimate sacrifice for us,” said Mark Crea, Executive Director and CEO of Feed My Starving Children. “These special sessions are a way to honor His message of caring for those in need by giving our time and treasure.”
