About Packing Food
Several times a week volunteers come in to pack meals with us. When you pack meals with us we work in an assembly line with 11 volunteers per table. We scoop ingredients into a bag and pass them down the table to get weighed, sealed and boxed. Once boxed we ring a bell and place the boxes on a pallet to be ready to ship. This is a fun family friendly event! We often say you come in as strangers and leave as friends. I’ve met some of my closest friends from volunteering here!
A typical packing shift packs 7,500 meal in less than 2 hours
