Platte Woods United Methodist Church
As part of our Faith In Action: Go. Serve. Love. event, PWUMC will host a Numana meal packing event to provide meals to Ukrainian refugees escaping their war torn country.
At a meal-packing event, individuals put together a simple meal of dry rice, soy protein, freeze-dried pinto beans and a blend of vitamins and minerals. Individuals measure the ingredients, scoop them into meal bags, weigh and seal the bags, and box the finished product. In about an hour, 10 people can pack 1,600 meals. Numana’s distribution partners will transport the boxes of packaged meals to their European partners for distribution to Ukrainian refugees.
This event is open to all ages and abilities.
Green Shirt Volunteers must be 18 or older and help with leading tables and back-of-house support.
