We are excited to share a great opportunity to Love Global – our Feed the Hunger Packathon! This church-wide outreach event will take place on Friday, February 5th and Saturday, February 6, 2021, in Connection Place and Bethany Hall.
A Packathon is a service event where participants team together to produce thousands of life-saving meals for hungry children both here and around the world.
People ages 5 to 105 work to assemble together four ingredients: rice, soy protein or pinto beans, dehydrated vegetables, and vitamin powder. These ingredients are repeatedly bagged, weighed, sealed and boxed during a two-hour shift. We can feed one child for up to an entire school year in just two hours!
Here’s how you can be involved:
Volunteering – Come package the food that your contribution made possible. It’s always fun to pack with people you know, so please recruit your friends.
Let us know how many from your family can help us pack on February 5th and 6th by signing up at our Guest Services desk or by clicking here. Our goal is to have 80 people on Friday and 80 people on Saturday packing meals together!
