San Francisco Makes 1 Million Meals for Haiti in Record 15 Hours


This news report gives great background to our Million Meals for Haiti relief effort and a quick inside look into how Salvation Army staff and volunteers contributed at San Francisco’s event. Find more videos here.

More than 2,000 volunteers turned out to help The Salvation Army and Numana Inc. pack 1 million meals for Haiti last Saturday, completing the extraordinary feat within 15 hours! Our previous events have always been spaced out over 2 days, so thanks to everyone who worked so hard to help us meet this goal.

With the help of UPS and FedEx, these million meals are in the process of being transported to Haiti where we will distribute them to the tens of thousands of Haitians who are being cared for by our teams.

  1. First of all I would like to say excellent blog!
    I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your head prior to writing. I’ve had a
    hard time clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out there.
    I truly do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually lost just trying to figure out how to begin.
    Any suggestions or hints? Appreciate it!
