Stop Hunger Now
Working together to End World Hunger
Meal-packaging events are the heart of Stop Hunger Now's work by working with volunteers
from corporations, faith congregations, schools, colleges and universities and civic groups.
Meal-packaging events take place either at a Stop Hunger Now warehouse or at the volunteers’ location
through a mobile operation that delivers ingredients and supplies.
During the event, volunteers work in teams at each packaging station.
Volunteers set up and take down packaging stations and equipment, fill bins with raw ingredients,
scoop ingredients into meal bags, weigh and seal the bags, box and stack them on pallets,
and load the pallets and equipment onto a truck.
Meal-packaging events are a great way to educate volunteers about global hunger and
inspire them to get more involved in fighting it. The events also give volunteers
hands-on experience in leadership development, team-building, relationship-building,
creative problem-solving, and goal-setting and achievement.
