Fourteen years ago Don and Tamela Sperr took a trip to Haiti. While there a large rainstorm hit and they witnessed families gathering up belongings and fleeing their flooded homes. Most notable in those belongings were big blue boxes that contained food from Feed My Starving Children (FMSC). They realized then how important those gifts of food were to these people.
The Sperr’s returned to Morris and started a mobile packing site here in the Fall of 2008. Since that time, volunteers have helped pack almost 2,500,000 meals. Last year, they were told that Morris is the longest running mobile site with FMSC. Many of these years over 200,000 meals were packed in Morris alone. Those numbers were down last year as the area was recovering from Covid and in 2020 there was no packing due to Covid.
