WAHPETON, N.D. (AP) - Volunteers in Wahpeton have produced 50,000 meals that will be delivered to locals and people in need in Tanzania.

WDAY-TV (https://bit.ly/1dFYSfk ) reports that about 350 people gathered at the city’s community center and worked in a giant assembly line to mass produce the meals.

The 7,500 pounds of food measured, bagged and boxed by volunteers were provided by Outreach, Inc.

It is estimated that at least 40 percent of the population in Tanzania lives in food-deficit regions.

The station reports the meals that stay in Wahpeton will be given to the food pantry and backpack program.

The event was organized by the Richland-Wilkin Ministerial Association.
