Pack Day FAQ
"What do Food for Kidz volunteers do?"
During the packing event on March 5, 2019, volunteers will package the ingredients we have purchased through our donations. Each food package contains six portions to feed hungry children and their families. Volunteers will be needed to help portion the food, label the portions, bundle the food into shipping boxes, and pack the boxes into a big-rig to be distributed to Phoenix area food banks and around the world.
"How many volunteers are needed?"
The 2018 , over 500 volunteers throughout the day packed 138,972 meals. Our 2019 goal is to prepare 150,000 meals which means we'll again need over 500 volunteers. Feel free to invite friends and family to help us with the 2019 event -- the more, the merrier!
"How do I register to volunteer for the packing event?"
No registration is needed. Just show up and join the fun! You can sign-up for an email reminder.
"Can I use this event to fulfill community service hours?"
Yes. We would be happy to sign-off on any school, church, or court-ordered community service hours.
"Do I need to bring anything to volunteer for the packing event?"
We'll provide all of the necessary supplies, just bring yourself! For the volunteers in charge or portioning the food, we will provide hair nets and gloves, but you are welcome to bring a hat to secure your hair instead. Some of the food ingredients can be slightly messy, so please wear clothing you don't mind being dusted with grains or powder.
"I can't make the packing day event on March 5th. How else can I help?"
To be able to reach our goal of 150,000 meals, we need donations to help purchase the food. You can also participate in the series of fundraising events we have planned leading up to the packing event.
