How Long Does it Take to Hand-Pack 31,000 Meals? November 30, 2017 Lori Messner Employees from Finance, Internal Audit and the Treasury departments in Anoka, Minnesota got together earlier this month to pack meals for the Feed My Starving Children organization. The non-profit organization provides hand-packed meals, specially formulated for malnourished children. Meals are shipped around the world. With hairnets in place and organized in assembly lines, they packed over 31,000 meals in just a few hours.
