The response to a food packaging drive by Rock County Rotary Clubs has been so overwhelming, officials say they have all the volunteers they need for this weekend's event.


More than 150 volunteered to package food through the "Kids Against Hunger" program hosted by Kandu Industries in Janesville. Volunteers will package the simple, high protein meals Saturday and Sunday, to be shipped to Haiti as part of the massive relief effort following that countries devastating earthquake.


Organizers say they could still use monetary donations though.
