About

On Friday, October 14, 2016, St. Louisans will join together to participate in St. Louis World Food Day 2016, an annual food-packaging event providing nutritious meals to hungry children and families living locally and internationally. " Packaging Partners" register for a one-hour packaging session and their registration fees ($10 students/educators; $20 adults), along with sponsorships and donations, help defray the cost of the ingredients, supplies, and delivery of the food to hungry kids and families in need. Leadership Volunteers sign up at no cost to volunteer in four hour shifts throughout the day assisting with the event's execution (i.e. set-up, training packagers, floor supervisors, reloading food bins, sealing boxes, escorting packagers in the Packaging Center, clean-up and take down). At the 2015 World Food Day event, 362,000 meals were packaged for local and international distribution.
