Hundreds of volunteers turn out at the Kansas Coliseum Saturday to help send meals to Haiti.

A long line of adults, teenagers and children waited before the packaging event organized by Numana, Inc. with the Salvation Army began.

Numana and the Salvation Army are working together with volunteers to reach a goal of 1 million meals packaged by the end of the weekend.

Last weekend over half a million meals were packaged in El Dorado by volunteers at a packaging event held by Numana. Those meals have already arrived in Haiti, according to an event spokesperson.
