OVER 50 volunteers prepared and packed thousands of meals that will be sent to disadvantaged communities in Cambodia.
Wagga's Kraft Heinz site was selected this year to produce 50,000 family-sized meals of rice dhal.
Site manager Jeff Millar said factory workers, friends and families including children as young as eight years old were volunteering and racing around the clock to hit the target.
"Each of the meals has rice, lentils, dried vegetable components and then micro-nutrient sachets, which are found in our fruit, vegetables and meat everyday but these steady sources of nutrients aren't available in some parts of the world," Mr Millar said.
"It's supposed to take three hours of packing...and it's a grounding experience for everyone involved.
"It's a great opportunity for us to pack these meals for people who are more needy than we are."
Volunteers were measuring the ingredients into plastic bags, then weighing, sealing and packing boxes ready for distribution.
It was factory worker Cibin Joseph's first time preparing meals to help those in need.
"It's actually quite nice because it's good to help others and I'm getting to know a lot of people too," Mrs Joseph said.
"It absolutely makes a difference and we're working at a fast place to reach the 50,000 target."
Rise Against Hunger has partnered with the Kraft Heinz company since 2013 to help undernourished families reach their full potential.
Another volunteer Ashleigh Cooper said the school holidays meant she was able to bring along her brother to help out.
"It's a bit of fun and it's also good to do as it's getting sent away for a good cause," she said.
