The mixtures of rice, soy, dehydrated vegetables and 21 vitamins and minerals will provide one meal a day for a year to 5,560 children..."This has been an amazing experience because of the impact it's going to cause in the lives of every child and every person who's going to eat these meals," Brad Powell, who heads up NorthRidge Church, said shortly after the 2 millionth meal was packed Sunday afternoon. "But I think you can see from the energy in this room and all that's going on it's going to change more than just the lives of those who will eat this food."
