"Service above self"

In a world where over 18,000 children die daily from starvation, Eagan Rotarians recently joined together at the Feed My Starving Children site in Eagan. They packaged 19,656 meals in 91 boxes with the 86 volunteers gathered for just 90 minutes! These vegetarian meal packages were filled with soy, rice, dried vegetables, vitamins, love & hope! Then the boxed meals were shipped to some of the 60 designated countries.
