This fall, the Nebraska Synodical Women’s Organization will join with the Nebraska Synod Prison Ministry, the Nebraska Women’s Correctional Center in York and Chapter 25 (formerly known as the Kids Against Hunger Program/Lincoln), to pack 150,000 nutritious meals for those in disasters and the hungry in Nebraska and around the world.
Those interested in supervising the packing stations at this event will meet on Friday, Nov. 4 at 6:00 pm at First Evangelical Lutheran Church (1211 E. 14th St.) in York.

On Saturday, Nov. 5, the group will be at the Nebraska Women’s Correctional Center assisting inmates in packing 150,000 Kids Against Hunger meals for distribution to those in disasters and the hungry in Nebraska and around the globe. During worship on Sunday, Nov. 6, there will be a dedication service, morning and evening devotions and fun activities.
