Feed The Hunger Packathon
February 9, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
We are excited to share a new opportunity to Love Global – our Feed the Hunger Packathon! This churchwide outreach event will take place on Saturday, February 9, 2019, in Connection Place.
A Packathon is a hands-on 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:
1. Donating – Help us reach the goal of packing 40,000 meals! Each Meal Costs only: 0.28¢.
You can donate by designating “Love Global Missions” on your check and/or tithe envelope. You may also donate via our website by clicking here. Select “Love Global – Feed the Hunger Packathon” on the donation page.
2. 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 9th by signing up at our Guest Services desk or by clicking here. Our goal is to have 200 people packing meals together!
3. Donating AND Volunteering! We encourage you to do both!
