Why: Together we can make a difference by sending thousands of meals to starving families around the world! Our goal is 100,000!!!
Here's How It Works: On March 14th and 15th we will set up HUGE assembly lines at the Christ the King Campus and Hephatha Lutheran Church. Awesome volunteers like YOU will work together to combine scoops of rice, beans, dehydrated vegetables and seasoning in one bag to provide fortified meals to communities like El Salvador. We will weigh and then seal the bags, pack them up in boxes, and load them into Worldwide Hunger Relief's trucks to be shipped off to those in need. Our goal is 100,000 meals and 500 volunteers!
Four Types of Volunteers are Needed!
Heavy Lifters who can schlep bags of rice and beans to the assembly lines
Table Managers who can run a table by giving direction to new groups and keeping the tables stocked with supplies (No prior training necessary!)
Sign In Table Folks who can greet people as they arrive, direct them to their table, and collect any day-of donations. (Smiling face required!)
Food Packers who will pack a whole box full of food packets - that's 218 meals - in only one hour! We ask that Food Packers consider a donation of $25/person or $75/family to offset the cost of the food that they are packing (kids of all ages welcome!)
OK! How Do I Participate?
- Click the "Sign Up" button next to your desired time & shift assignment
- Select how many you are signing up for in that time slot
- Enter your email (you will receive a reminder email prior to event)
- Hit submit
- Click Here to go to our Vanco Payment site and scroll down to "Food Pack" to make a donation to offset the cost of the food you will be packing through UNITY Lutheran Church's website. Suggested donation is $25/individual or $75/family. The website is secure and donations are tax deductible! 100% of donations will go to cover the food packed during the event. Payments will also be accepted day of event at the door.
Can't be there to help? Donate money for someone else to pack a box of food. Click Here to go to our Vanco Payment site and scroll down to "Food Pack" and add your money in the Food Pack Donation section. Consider this: SPONSOR a table (~8 people) for $200 for a team or a group to pack!
Why am I paying to volunteer? We know it can feel weird to have to "pay" to serve. But really you are making a donation that pays for the food we will be packing. Because of YOUR willingness to come pack food, Worldwide Hunger Relief can send highly nutritious meals to people around the world for only 20 cents a meal! The supplies for one box worth of food costs $43.25. Because they want to be part of ending hunger and because they are SUPER grateful to you for donating and packing, UNITY Lutheran Church has offered to cover a portion of each box packed. That is why we are suggesting a donation of $25 for an individual and $75 for families. If you don't feel like you can make that big of a donation right now but you still want to pack, donate what you can and come anyway! We sure won't turn you away! If you feel like you can donate MORE, your donation will help offset the cost of food packed by families and those who can't purchase a whole box-worth of food. We're pretty sure by the end of the day you will feel GREAT about how much good each dollar you donate will do for the community.
