The soon-to-be 10 year-old who didn’t want birthday presents had a big party this weekend.

Jake Tassin told his parents he didn’t want presents for his birthday. So, they hosted a meal packing party for “Meals from the Heartland” on Saturday.

Seventy guests made 10,000 meals, which doubled Jake’s goal. Each meal costs twenty cents. Jake asked friends and family to contribute money for the meals instead of giving him birthday presents.
