Missionaries at Provo MTC Assemble 350,000 Meals for Thanksgiving Day Service Project


“I think we all are able to be more grateful when we give to someone else,” said Ginette Bott, chief development officer of the Utah Food Bank. “I hope this will be a lasting memory for these [missionaries].”

For Thanksgiving Day, missionaries in the Provo MTC donned red and blue hair nets, sang songs and rang cowbells as they worked together to assemble more than 350,000 Breakfast Bites meals to donate to the Utah Food Bank. The ingredients to assemble Apple Pie Oats kits — Scottish oats, puffed rice, dehydrated apple bits and nutmeg — were contributed by the Church and organizers from Feeding Children Everywhere, a non-profit organization started in Orlando, Florida, provided the supplies and arranged the assembly lines in one of the parking garages at the MTC.
