Earthquake survivors in Haiti are still in desperate need of supplies.

So, on Saturday at the Cow Palace in Daly City, volunteers are boxing up 1 million meals for the people of earthquake-ravaged Haiti.

The meals are packages of dehydrated rice, beans and vegetables that can be easily served after being boiled in water.

"The food is packed into these small plastic bags.. Each bag serves six portions and they go into boxes, and when we're all done, we'll have about four semis worth of boxes that are backed up and ready to be shipped off to Haiti," explained Major Kelly Pontsler.

Volunteers expect to be packing up the boxes until about 11 p.m. The boxes are due to arrive in Haiti in a couple of weeks.
