The annual Stop Hunger Now daylong meal-packaging event of the Wilton Interfaith Action Committee (Wi-ACT) is coming up on Saturday, Oct. 26. This year’s goal is packaging 110,000 meals (enough to feed 300 otherwise starving children for an entire year), up from 101,000 meals last year and 76,500 meals the year before.
Wi-ACT is composed of 10 Wilton faith institutions — Christian, Jewish, and Muslim — and brings their congregants together to work for good. Volunteers for the event register online for one of four work shifts: 9-11 a.m., 11 a.m. -1 p.m., 1-3 p.m., and 3-5 p.m. Last year, 450 volunteers took part. This year, 500 volunteers are needed.
