WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- Three Kansas groups are seeking 2,000 volunteers to pack thousands of meals for children in Haiti and possibly set a world record in the process.

The effort is being put together by Volunteer Kansas, the hunger relief group Numana Inc. and The Downtown Rotary Club of Wichita.

The goal is to package 208,000 meals in one hour on Feb. 16 at the Kansas Coliseum pavilions in Wichita. The groups say the 208,000 meals would be a Guinness world record and provide a year's worth of lunches for 800 school children in Haiti.

Volunteers are also being asked to bring two canned goods to help stock the Kansas Food Bank and feed children in Kansas.
