           On May 5, twelve members of the Rippey United Methodist Church helped pack food bags for Meals from the Heartland in West Des Moines.  They filled each food bag with soy meal, powdered vitamins, dehydrated vegetables, and rice, which will feed six people.  Twenty boxes, containing 36 bags in each, were completed by the group. 

            The 720 bags will feed 4,320 meals.  Ten percent of the meals packaged stays in Iowa and the other 90% goes throughout the US and other countries in the world.  Meals from the Heartland is an Iowa organization. The ingredients for the food bags come from Iowa, Arkansas, and Wisconsin. Ten dollars will pay for fifty meals.            

            Raising money for and working at the Meals from the Heartland was the 2016-2017 Sunday School project for the Rippey UMC. We were able to present $803.00 to the project   Members attending were: Connie Neese; Carmen, Kaitlyn, and Emma McColley; Lorraine Kelly; Jacob Brubaker; Kevin and Mary Ann Hick; Jo, Yvette, Avery, and Aden Bardole.
