ROSEBURG, Ore. – Students at a Roseburg Academy spent their morning packaging meals for hungry children both localy and abroad.  Students of all ages put on hairnets, gloves, and facemasks in prepration to give back. They prepared 10,000 meals for hungry kids in Haiti and Douglas County.“Anytime they have a chance to think about other people and to do something that is solely for the purpose of helping someone else, I think that’s a great opportunity,” said Brian Turner, the headmaster. The kids were more than excited to help out. Some went above and beyond.“I really like doing it because we as Americans we get to donate a lot of what we waste to people who actually need it,” said Skyla Stokes, a student.Stokes went on a local radio station to talk about Haiti and feed the need. Another student, Kyrra Tucker, stood up in front of her sunday school class to talk about the fundraiser.“When I did it, it was pretty exciting to get up and say and tell them about feed the need and how it’s going to help kids in Haiti,” Tucker said. The meals were filled with rice, a vitamin mix, vegetables, and protein. 8,500 of them will go to Haiti, while the rest will stay in Douglas County.The ingredients for all the meals prepared today were provided by General Mills.
