Hundreds of Orphans Fed
For the second consecutive year, Operation Inasmuch is shipping 130,000 nutritious meals to Guatemala which will provide good food to many hundreds of orphans in that country. Operation Inasmuch has partnered with Orphans Resources International (PA) to make this food available to some of the most vulnerable people on the planet.
David Crocker, Founder of Operation Inasmuch, says: “We are extremely pleased to be able to provide so much nutritious food at no cost to Guatemalan children. Many of us have seen the devastation brought on by a major eruption in that poor country. Our hope is the food we have given will help alleviate some of the suffering there.”
Some of the children at these orphanages are shown in this article receiving the food donated by Inasmuch. The food is prepared on site and served warm to the children.
The Inasmuch ministry began offering food packing events to churches and other groups as an extension of our ministry five years ago. We did not seek this opportunity, but it is now clear that God brought it to us. Altogether Inasmuch has staged packing events in four states totaling about 750,000 meals… and most of these meals have gone to Guatemala.
Crocker says: “Almost half of the shipment going out this month was done in a large packing event on May 5. In that event about 200 volunteers from 13 Knoxville churches and 2 schools worked side-by-side for 5 hours in packing 59,000 meals. It was a huge collaborative effort that will do a great deal of good for people who need it!” View pictures from this event here.
He adds: “We are grateful for the collaboration with Orphans Resources International who is responsible for shipping the food we donate to Guatemala, warehousing it until it is distributed, and actually distributing it throughout the country. Were it not for them, it would not be possible for us to get the food our volunteers pack to the children who need it.”
