Description

Volunteer for 1 Day and support our food packing project in Bentley Pavilion, Doncaster!

Friday 8th February 2019 at Bentley Pavilion

  • You need to arrive at the Pavilion by 10.30am
  • You need to be over 18
  • All equipment will be provided, just bring yourself!
  • Snacks and refreshments will be provided

Food packing is very simple; teams of volunteers work together on a food production line to bag, weigh, seal and box packets of dried food. For example, a team of 60 volunteers can pack 10,000 meals within the space of a couple of hours!

Lord Nick Bourne (Minister for Faith & Communities, Parliamentary Under Secretary Wales) will be joining us along with other civic, community and business leaders. Book now and join us for this amazing event!

Packing food not only creates an end-resource which is sent by Feed The Hungry to help some of the poorest children around the world, but creates a space to chat and work together as a community to practically help others.

In the United States and elsewhere in Europe, food packing is fairly well known. In 2017, over 300 million meals were packed in the USA and sent overseas. In the UK, food packing is relatively new, although is becoming more common, especially in the corporate sector.
