Food Packaging Events are a really fun and impactful way to be a part of the solution to the world hunger problem. Whether you have a group of 12 or 1,200 people a Kids Against Hunger food packaging event is a fun and impactful way to help end hunger. And don't worry about age, from kids in the 2nd grade to folks age 99, they can play a huge part in a Kids Against Hunger food packaging event.
What is it? Well quite simply, you and your group raise the money to can package up a lot of the Kids Against Hunger Rice-Soy Casserole meals in a really short time. Basically, at .$25 cents a meal, in one hour, 12 people can package enough food to feed around 2,500 children. If you want to package more meals with more people, we can come up with a plan that works for your group. Our Food Packaging Events take place at our warehouse in Temple, however we can discuss bringing the fun to your place of business, church or school. Packaging Events will last for one hour each (with the option to participate in more than one). Each volunteer will package $40 to $50 worth of food per hour.
Meals are packed six to a bag, 36 bags to a box of 216 meals, and 33 boxes per pallet of 7128 meals. The packing process involves eleven people working together along side of two 8' tables to pack, weigh, seal and box the meals.
Churches, schools, companies and civic clubs can all play an active role to help answer the call on the fight against world hunger. Together we can bring hope to the hopeless. Let us know if you are interested and we can work out the details.
