Nearly 50,000 meals will be sent to Haiti thanks to Park Rapids Century School students.

Fifth through eighth grade students took turns packing meals with Kids Against Hunger Wednesday and Thursday.


Classes took turns packing food for about 45 minutes each.

"We're shipping the food to the Twin Cities then it will go to Florida and eventually Port-au-Prince," said Mark Waller, director of the Park Rapids chapter of Kids Against Hunger.
