A volunteer group in South Georgia came together to extend their services in an effort to fight against hunger.

Tracy Floyd opened The Country Store in September of 2009. She sells a variety of items, including chicken feed, dog food and other products animals need.

Over 50 members of the Thomasville's Methodist Women group volunteered over three hours Saturday with Kids Against Hunger in Cairo, Georgia. Members ranging from teens to adults all pulled up their sleeves and packed thousands of bags of food for children in need.

"They're actually going through every process packing the food, labeling, boxing the food ... knowing that in two weeks some child is going to be fed," said United Methodist Member Ellen Jeter.

According to United Nations World Food Programme the Kids Against Hunger meal is formulated to meet the nutritional requirements for a child.
