A “Better Together” Food Packing event has two missional goals:
Goal #1- Provide opportunities for cross-cultural relationship building
Goal #2- Provide nutritious food for local communities
What will happen: Prior to each shift, people from various culture(s) present some educational aspect about their culture (5-10 minutes) and provide orientation for packaging. The participants will package meals of different types that include a nutritional scoop of vitamins. All are designed for American food shelf tastes. For more information, please see outreachprogram.org. Up to 150 persons pack for 2 hours. All food goes to local food shelves, backpack programs and disable/homeless veterans.
