Worldwide Difference

Enough food exists to feed the world’s 7 billion people, but every night one of nine people go to bed hungry.

You can make a difference!

Join the food packing event on April 28th at Calvary Harvest Fields in Boalsburg and help pack 150,000 meals and 22,500 seed envelopes for Middle Eastern refugees.

Meals

Seed Envelopes

The meals we pack will be sent to Middle Eastern Refugees who have no access to food and housing. These meals will provide a nutritious amount of essential vitamins and minerals for the malnourished. The seed packs will be used by the refugees to plant community gardens in order to increase food security.

Volunteer for a 2 1/2 hour packing shift

Training is provided at the start of each food pack session.  Choose one, two, or three sessions to volunteer at.

Refugees and Hunger

All around the globe, hunger and malnutrition claim lives while crippling the advancement of individual communities.  The United Nations reports that childhood hunger is responsible for the deaths of 6.5 million children under the age of five each year. With over 68 million refugees and displaced people in the world today, half of those are children under 18 plagued by malnutrition.

Meals and seeds packed on April 28 will be delivered to Middle Eastern refugees through the partnership with GAiN (Global Aid Network).
