"With 25¢ you can feed a child, and with $1 you can feed a family of four. Money raised turns into people fed. A staggering 49 million in America, including 1 in 5 children, are food-insecure. We have regional food banks, local food pantries and schools that would like more meals than we can produce. But there’s hope!"
HOW IT WORKS
GATHER A TEAM OF PEOPLE
With these people, discuss how large of an event you would like to have, who you would like to participate in your event, estimate how many volunteers will be participating, where your event will take place, and the date of your event.
DECIDE: DOMESTIC OR INTERNATIONAL
Before you begin, you’ll need to decided whether you want to package meals for domestic or international hunger. Domestic meals will be used locally or go to a food relief facility of your choice. International Meals will be shipped to partners or missions that we support or we can send them to our partners.
SET A MEAL PACKING GOAL
Set a goal for the number of meals you want to pack at your event. We have an easy formula to follow: 1. One volunteer can package up to 160 meals per hour 2. 12 volunteers are stationed at each packing line 3. One packing line can package 1,500 - 2,00 meals per hour
