United Way of Muscatine’s Volunteer Center has partnered with Faith UCC and Outreach, Inc to help organize volunteers to package food for the hungry.
Outreach, Inc. is an Iowa-based organization that supplies high-quality, protein-fortified ingredients that volunteers package into easy-to-store-and-prepare meals for community meal sites and food pantries – for 25¢ per meal.
Packing events are great for youth groups, students, civic groups or even a group of friends and family. Groups choose which date and time they would like to pack. Please contact Nichole at 563-263-5963 or firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule your packing event at Faith UCC (3307 Mulberry Ave).
Each group pays for their own ingredients, bags and boxes.
-Cost is $750 for 3,000 meals
-Time commitment is 2.5 hours of packing for 12 people
Food can go where ever the group would like, such as local food pantries, or even to a mission project that the group is working on. Groups may take what they’ve packed or choose where the meals will be served.
