Liquid Church Set to Distribute 1.1M Packed Meals to the Needy in Haiti

Liquid Church, based in New Jersey, in partnership with Rise Against Hunger, a non-profit organization, is set to distribute a total of 1.1 million meals in Haiti. Initially, they packed about 800,000 meals for the needy in Haiti. Six of the church’s campuses had about 3,000 volunteers who helped with the process of sharing the food packs.

In an interview with The Christian Post, outreach director of Liquid Church, Kristin Flynn said that although they were unable to achieve the goal of 1 million packed meals, they were able to get 300,000 meals from local sources. This made the total number of food packs to be 1.1 million.

Flynn added that the effort of the outreach was “one of those events that folds everybody in, from little kiddos to soccer teams to family from out of state. We can all do our part, we can all come together and pack these meals for a good cause. We can agree upon that right now, even though things are a little divisive."

She continued, “What I saw on Saturday was just a lot of people coming together for one really good purpose, which was to pack these meals so that people will not go hungry.”

Due to the upheavals, the U.S. Department of State last month asked Americans inside Haiti to depart the country soonest.

 “U.S. citizens should carefully consider the risks of traveling to or remaining in Haiti in light of the current security situation and infrastructure challenges. Widespread fuel shortages may limit essential services in an emergency, including access to banks, money transfers, urgent medical care, internet and telecommunications, and public and private transportation options. 

"The Embassy is unlikely to be able to assist U.S. citizens in Haiti with departure if commercial options become unavailable,” the U.S. Embassy in Port-au-Prince said.
