Sponsor a Meal Packing Event
Meal packing events are powerful and fun! During the event, your group will assemble meals that will later be distributed to the recipient of your choice. Here's how it works:
Hunger is prevalent in every corner of the world. You can join us to fight this destructive force.
You can direct the meals to one of our partner agencies in Haiti or Guatemala or choose to have them stay in the United States.
Your group can pack anywhere from 3,000 to 1 million meals or more! Each meal costs $0.27 to create. Your meal goal will drive your fundraising goal.
We come to you or you come to us! If your meal goal is less than 30,000 meals we ask that you come to our Indianapolis packing facility. If you plan to pack more than 30,000 meals in the Indianapolis metro area, we bring a turnkey packing event to your location.
If you are outside the Indianapolis metro area, please contact Jen Larson-Thompson for meal packing minimums.
A Pack Away Hunger representative will work with you to schedule the event.
Your fundraising goal is based on the number of meals you want to pack. Each meal costs $0.27.
We will share fundraising ideas and marketing materials to help raise awareness and excitement for your event!
Recruit volunteers to pack at the event based on the number of meals you plan to pack. 12 people can pack 3,000 - 4,000 meals in one 2.5 hour shift.
We offer online sign-ups to help streamline the registration process.
Pack Away Hunger provides all of the ingredients needed to pack the meals. An experienced event manager will train the volunteers and supervise the packing process. Your team assembles the meals and feels great for helping others!
