Every week, volunteers package millions of meals through Stop Hunger Now’s meal packaging program and in 2017 the Pirates are getting onboard!
Just one Stop Hunger Now package can feed six people — a short time commitment from volunteers makes a big impact.
Before each event, Stop Hunger Now staff set up supplies, recycling areas, packaging materials and weigh stations, and then an assembly line is established and specific jobs are tailored to each station, then the packaging fun begins!
All Stop Hunger Now Meals include:
This combination is chosen specially to ensure full quality protein, macronutrient and micronutrient content for the receiver. Many countries will then add their own variety of local spices to bring their own flavor profile to the meal.
A group of 40 to 50 volunteers can package 10,000 meals in just two hours!
