               SCOOP is a service event sponsored by The Parable Fund, a local 501(c)(3) educational non

            profit. The event will be held right here in our Community Bridge Consortium area - Oakdale.
         The goal is to pack 545,000 meals in just three days to feed 1,400 people for an entire year; people
       who face severe hunger in places like Haiti and pockets of Africa.
   SCOOP needs 2,700 youth and adult volunteers to pack these meals.
Twenty-five of those volunteers can be Community Bridge participants!
Feed My Starving Children (FMSC) provides all the ingredients, packaging
and equipment that will be used for this event through their MobilePack
The cost of ingredients for each meal packed is twenty-two cents. Your
suggested donation of $6.00 will pay for 27 meals! The Parable Fund will
be doing additional fund raising in the community to pay for meals not covered by packer donations.
After the meals are packed FMSC will ship them to one of seventy countries where they are desperately needed.
