Just 8 months later they were up to 61 packs a week. Currently, the group makes over 90 food packs a week and by the end of this school year, they will have made over 30,000 packs of food. They held a 10th Anniversary Birthday Party on Monday to celebrate with over 100 people attending who helped make 300 packs of food along with having birthday treats.
