Volunteers fill Union Station to help feed starving children of the world

Thousands of volunteers in Chicago are taking on a very serious task over the next two days: Feeding starving children across the world.

Feed My Starving Children is a 25 year old organization that supplies 215 million meals a year to 70 countries around the world.

At Union Station today and tomorrow – one of the organizations largest mobile packing events – will ultimately feed a half of a million kids in sub-Sahara Africa. The food will go mostly to orphanages and school feeding programs.

Dozens of businesses in the loop are participating in the two day event.

And while many of the men and women here have never and may never see the kids who will benefit from their time, they are all still touched by the opportunity to offer a helping hand.
