Pack Day FAQ
"What do Food for Kidz volunteers do?"
During the Pack Day events (usually in March) volunteers will pack 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. Half of these meals will be sent to the Valley View Community Food Bank and half will be sent to Minnesota for distribution to areas around the world.
"How many volunteers are needed?"
Pack Day 2022 saw over 500 volunteers throughout the day to pack 188,500 meals. Feel free to invite friends and family to help us with the events -- 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. How else can I help?"
To be able to reach our goals, we need to raise money. Please participate in our fundraising events.
