Food Sent to Russia

Food Sent to Russia

Children in foster homes and orphanages in Russia will be the main beneficiaries of a shipment of food supplies donated by the Church.

More than 40,000 pounds of supplies from the Bishops’ Central Storehouse were shipped to San Francisco and combined with other donations. Three cargo planes then picked up the supplies and flew them to Moscow.

The donation will be distributed by the Children as the Peacemakers Foundation, an organization that promotes the welfare of children internationally. The supplies included flour, beans, rice, powdered milk, canned meat, and applesauce.

Fast offering donations and voluntary labor by Church members keep the bishops’ storehouses stocked in supplies, thereby enabling Church participation in humanitarian projects.
