Join us to provide meals to hungry families around the world by volunteering just two hours of your time
In light of the present situation and the need for social distancing how can we still promote Local Solidarity? The Social Justice Committee continues to invite Parishioners to reach out and spend just 1 ½ hours packing meals for hungry children in partnership with Kids Against Hunger. Thank you for your heartfelt response to our packing events with KAH last year.
Kids Against Hunger is a non-profit organization with a mission to provide nutritious food to impoverished children and families. They organize meal-packing events where volunteers assemble meals for hungry children all over the world. Visit https://kahbayarea.org/ for more information.
Due to the current COVID pandemic KAH is limiting food packaging events to no more than 20 people at any given time at their warehouse. Each person has an 8 ft table to themselves or Families can share 2 8ft tables. The cost to participate is $20 per person, which covers the cost of the ingredients, packaging, shipping, hair nets, sanitizing, etc. and over 200 meals per person can be packed in about 90 minutes (that’s 4000 meals!).
The packaged food may be shipped to Haiti for continued relief efforts or distributed locally including to the Cathedral of Faith in San Jose for their “Reaching Out Food Distribution”. For more details go cathedraloffaith.org/events/
Parishioners are encouraged to sign up for our CCOP Packing Event (click on the link below) or join any public event at KAH by going to KAH - join-a-packing-event.
