About 85 local students will go without food and sleep in a cardboard box this weekend.
According to Dave Collie, youth minister at Campbellsville Baptist Church, 26,000 children die all over the world every day from hunger-related issues.
"That is 300 school buses of children every day."
The 30-Hour Famine event will begin Friday at 7 a.m. and continue through noon on Saturday. Churches involved are Campbellsville Baptist, Living Grace and First Church of God.
