Partners in Hope
Your neighbors are partnering with Outreach, an international 501(c)(3) non-profit, which has packaged and distributed over 264 million meals to hungry children and their families since 2004. Through its innovative mobile food packaging program, Outreach brings together hundreds, sometimes thousands, of volunteers - in church halls, school gyms, and conference centers - each prepared to donate time and money to package meals for the hungry. These are extraordinary spirit-enriching events of giving and caring in which any one of any age or background can participate and extend love to those in need.
Volunteers are organized into small group assembly lines, preparing delicious, nutritious meals of pasta and cheese - all fortified with soy protein, nutrients, and vitamins - and bagged, labeled, weighed, and boxed employing safety and hygienic precautions.
Meals are distributed to the hungry and food insecure locally in our community.
