Sherwood Park Against Hunger Meal Packaging Event

*Save the Date (February 22, 2020)*

 

You are invited to participate in a very rewarding event, packaging meals for well-deserved people.  Together with your help, our goal is to package 60,000 meals. Please bring an item for our local food bank, so we can feed the hungry within our community as well.

 

Meal packaging will take place on Feb 22, 2020 at the OLPH Catholic Church in the basement located at 13 Brower Drive Sherwood Park. We need approx 200 volunteers from ages 6 and up (per shift) to help package the meals in an assembly line fashion. These meals are dry packed in pouches containing Vitamins, Dried Vegetables, Lentils and Rice.  Each pouch will hold six nutritional servings easily prepared on site by adding water and cooking for 10 minutes.

This event is a fun way to spend time with friends and family for a wonderful cause. We have 2 shifts that you can choose to attend: 1st shift is 8:30am-12:00pm and the second shift is 12:30-4:00pm.

 

Your presence will go a long way to change someone’s life. Last year’s recipients were the Edmonton Inner City Soup Kitchens, Northern Canada remote communities as well as International Communities in need. On behalf of the Rotary Club of Sherwood Park, The OLPH Knights of Columbus, Emmanuel Foundation, Arctic Chiller and The OLPH Society of St. Vincent de Paul. THANK YOU in advance for volunteering your time for this very worthy cause!
