More than 450,000 volunteers have packaged meals through Stop Hunger Now’s meal packaging program. It is a fun, hand’s on mission project that is suitable for all ages. Our assembly process combines rice, soy, dehydrated vegetables and a flavoring mix including 23 essential vitamins and minerals into small meal packages. These meal packages are shipped around the world to support school feeding programs and crisis relief. The food stores easily, transports quickly and has a shelf-life of two years.
- Set a goal for the number of meals you will package. 35-40 volunteers can package 10,000 meals in 2 hours. The minimum number of meals is 10,000 for a mobile packaging event. There is no limit to the program as it is totally scalable. Meal packaging events can range from 10,000 meals to 1,000,000 meals.
