HUNTSVILLE, Ala. - Monday afternoon, a gym at Randolph School was filled with 73 excited fifth-graders.

The students had gathered to pack meals for Stop Hunger Now, a non-profit humanitarian relief organization.

Since 1998, the group has provided 200 million meals to people in 71 countries.

In just about two hours, the students ensured another 10,000 could be added to the total.

Student Josey Fann said she and her friends were glad to participate.

"It makes me feel good in knowing that kids can make a difference, too," she said.
