Celebrating 11th birthday fighting kids hunger

Posted: Updated:

A pair of 11 year-old boys are celebrating their birthdays, this weekend. Instead of a birthday party, they're helping kids their own age fight hunger.

All it took was a little rice, a few other ingredients and some TLC in assembly-line fashion to pack nearly a thousand food bags for Kids Against Hunger, this afternoon.

Harrison Fischer and Sam Johnson not only share a birthday, but a passion for helping others which is exactly why they're doing this.

They've invited friends from their schools at Discovery Elementary and St. Michael's to help.

"Other people should do this because if it's your birthday, you can help other people instead of you getting all this stuff, you can help people get other things," Harrison Fischer said.

"It feels really good just to help with other people," Sam Johnson said.

The party guests packed enough bags to feed just under 6,000 kids in Sioux Falls and around the world.
