Prasco Food Processing Center

Feeding the Hungry

The cost of food worldwide has increased drastically over the past couple of years, making it harder for families in poverty to survive. Nearly 1 billion people around the world are hungry.

Food Distribution to the poor

In response to this growing need and with the generous support of Prasco, Matthew 25: Ministries has built the Prasco Food Processing Center. This facility can assemble 30 bags of food per minute. The output for a single six-hour day of processing can be 10,800 bags of nutritional food!

In the Prasco Food Processing Center, Matthew 25: Ministries has the capability to package a variety of products including clean water. We are currently packaging a nutritionally enhanced rice-soy blend for only 9 cents per serving.

The Prasco Food Processing Center allows for quick response to natural disasters, during which nutritious food and clean water are essential components of emergency relief.

On July 16, 2012 we processed our 5 Millionth meal! Thank you to Prasco and our supporters for helping us feed the hungry.
