What countries are currently receiving food packages?

Currently, Afghanistan has been a target area for us to feed children in refugee camps, orphanages and schools where there is a 30% malnutrition rate which is famine level. Also, with the current refugee movement in the countries around Syria we are actively pursuing avenues to assist them. Food from our warehouse in Stewart, MN is scheduled in the next several weeks to ship to the Philippines, Sri Lanka, Honduras and Nicaragua for distribution.

Is there a minimum number of people needed to host my own packing event?

No! Our motto is that we’ll go anywhere if we can affect the life of one child. There’s certainly someone receiving the food that gets packaged but children helping to package food and help others are affected too. Contact us and we’ll help modify an event planning and details to fit your ability to help.

What if I’m not located close to your headquarters? Can I still organize a food packaging event?

Yes! It is important to us that we’re able to assist all people willing to volunteer regardless of where you are located. Contact us and we’ll connect you with a partner in your area.

Do you have other offices or warehouses outside MN?

Yes! We have an office and warehouse now in Spokane, Washington. From there we plan to help local churches, schools, food banks and businesses get food out to those in need.

Can children help package food?

Yes! Children ages pre-school and up are welcome to help according to their abilities.
