"If you can't feed a hundred, then feed just one." Mother Theresa

Once again, the Annual "Then Feed Just One" food packing event is returning to the Palo Alto County Fairgrounds on Saturday morning, September 9.

Anyone who has ever had the desire to participate in a mission trip to another country but could not do so due to time, money, family obligations, or a host of other reasons, now has an opportunity to do the next best thing.

NEEDING?HELP - A tolupan Indian girl is pictured in her family home in central Honduras. Mission Honduras LeMars will once again conduct a meal packing event at the Palo Alto County Fairgrounds on September 9. Volunteers are being sought to participate in this annual effort, known as “Then Feed Just One.” -- submitted photo

"Then Feed Just One" is an opportunity to kind of go on a local mission. By donating $30 and an hour of your time you can help send nutritious meal packages to a group or family that would otherwise go hungry.

The young lady in the photo is a Tolupan Indian in the central Honduras area called Montana de la Flor. She is standing in front of the family home, if you can call it a home. Unfortunately she is a poster child for malnutrition.

"Then Feed Just One" is a subgroup of Mission Honduras LeMars, an organization based in LeMars, Iowa, that helps provide food, clean water, housing, and healthcare to the needy in Honduras.

Emmetsburg resident Dr. Ted Ellis was a member of a medical mission march 2012 and can attest to the sincerity of purpose and accomplishments of Mission Honduras LeMars.

Area residents or groups that would like to participate in this wonderful endeavor, are being asked to call or email Lois Stanley at 712-852-2692 or

You may also contact Bonnie Whitney at 712-852-9160 or email

To understand the mission, read Matthew 25:31-40, and then visit the "The Feed Just One" website at
