INTERESTED IN HOSTING AN EVENT AT YOUR LOCATION?
PROVIDE HANDS-ON IMPACT ON FOOD INSECURITY RIGHT HERE IN YOUR COMMUNITY
Meals for a Million customizes meal-packing events to fit nearly any style of organization. And, they’re easy to host. From food to tools to processes to packaging, we bring it all. We can even bring the tables if needed. Participants are grouped into teams that work together to combine the ingredients into the packs. Each fortified meal includes rice, oatmeal, soy, dehydrated fruits and vegetables and spices containing essential vitamins and minerals.
We are not a food bank, but a way to pack food for distribution through our community partners going directly into the hands of the working poor and food insecure.
OUR EVENTS ARE A SPECIAL OPPORTUNITY TO HELP CHANGE THE LIVES OF OTHERS IN OUR COMMUNITY MADE POSSIBLE BY COLLABORATION WITH COMMUNITY CONNECTIONS. FOR THE PEOPLE, BY THE PEOPLE.
HOW IT WORKS
This idea was created to give volunteer groups — from schools, to communities of faith, to workplaces and civic clubs — the opportunity to make a direct impact AND to become educated, engaged advocates for ending hunger. Volunteers gain experience in leadership development, team building, creative problem solving and goal setting and achievement. Our meals are distributed to those in need RIGHT HERE IN OUR AREA, meeting immediate needs today while enabling communities to break the cycle of poverty.
To get started in organizing a Meal Packaging Event, reach out to us. We will help you set a goal for the number of meals you will package, and tell you how many volunteers you will need to recruit based on your goal. Then, raise money for your event to cover the cost of each meal you package. A group of 40 to 50 volunteers can package 10,000 meals in about two hours. While the minimum is 10,000 meals, Meal Packaging Events are easily scalable and can accommodate packaging up to 1 million meals.
