Park High School football team sets record with Feed My Starving Children

The Park High School football team set a new packing record after they volunteered to fill boxes of food at Feed My Starving Children. The Wolfpack football family packed 293 boxes at the Eagan facility on September 16.

Head coach Darin Glazier said, "I am very proud of the work that our student-athletes did. Community service is an important element of our program. We want to make sure our players know how important it is to give back to the community. We filled three buses and many of the coaching staff brought their own children to help out as well."

The amount of food packed will feed 174 children for one calendar year, for a total of 63,288 meals.

Sophomore quarterback Jake Kuemmel said, "It’s great that we are able to help out those less fortunate than us. It was also great team bonding. Adding a little competition to the night made it fun too; we wanted to break their packing record."

Founded by a Minnesota businessman in 1987, Feed My Starving Children (FMSC) is a Christian non-profit that provides nutritionally complete meals specifically formulated for malnourished children.
