As a direct response to recent events in Haiti, the Madison Relief Organization (MRO) will sponsor a volunteer event, Madison Meals for Haiti, on April 8, 9, and 10, where volunteers will prepare half a million meals for Haitians in need.
The group requests that volunteers donate $25 and 90 minutes. In just 90 minutes, each volunteer will prepare over 200 meals. At just 12 cents per meal, this is an extremely cost-effective strategy to provide direct aid to Haitians.
The ultimate goal is to package 500,000 meals during the three-day event. During the event, volunteers will assemble the food in a supervised, sanitary setting, during 90-minute shifts. For registration and information, visit www.mealsforhaiti.org.
Any person able to sit or stand for up to 90 minutes can prepare meals.

To facilitate the event, MRO partnered with Feeding Children International and Kids Against Hunger. These two groups have developed a nutritionally balanced, dried-food meal that has been distributed to over 40,000,000 children and people in need across the U.S. and around the world.
Relief International will ensure that the meals reach Haitians in need. Relief International’s emergency response teams in Haiti will provide these life-saving meals to children and families in hospitals and makeshift living camps.
