Regulator Marine shut down production for an hour on Friday to participate in packaging meals for Stop Hunger Now.
More than 70 Regulator employees packaged 10,200 meals in just 50 minutes. Made of a dehydrated rice/soy meal fortified with 21 essential vitamins and nutrients, Stop Hunger Now meals are distributed to crisis-burdened areas or supplied to school feeding programs around the world.
“As a company, our focus isn’t on just the bottom line,” Regulator president Joan Maxwell said in a statement. “It is on giving back to our community and supporting the work of the Lord, which includes feeding the hungry.”
After every 1,000 meals, the Regulator team rang a gong to celebrate the milestone. After all of the meals were packaged on the pallet, the Regulator team gave them a final prayer before they left the building.
“It was nice to be a part of a company that thinks outside of itself,” assembler Thomas Bouch said.
“I enjoyed it because we were able to help others that are less fortunate than us. It was great to work with other members of Regulator [from different departments], and we were able to accomplish a lot with our teamwork,” office assistant Delicia Rankins said.
