Our goal is to pack 16,666 meals in six separate one hour sessions in the Family Life Center. To do this we need 90 volunteers per hour on the morning of Super Bowl Sunday (usually the first Sunday in February). That’s over 360 volunteers that are needed.
Our next Hunger Bowl is February 7, 2021!
What to expect
The work is fairly simple and easy, making it a great service opportunity for Elementary-age children, teenagers and/or adults. For a basic idea of what a meal pack looks like, be sure to check out this video! (NOTE: we are requiring all meal pack participants to wear facemasks.)
Meal packing times are 8:30 AM, 9:45 AM, 11:11 AM, 12:30 PM, 1:30 PM and 2:30 PM. Our most popular meal pack times are 9:45 and 11:11 PM, so if you want to participate then you will need to register early.
Participants are asked to form their own groups of 6- to 9-people that they are comfortable working with and signing up together! Facemasks, gloves and hairnets will be required. To ensure enough space, we will ask participants to stand at their station “color spot” and wait to be picked up by their station captain.
PLEASE NOTE: If you require childcare, please register during the 9:45 AM meal pack time.
Registration is divided into six time slots — 8:30 AM, 9:45 AM, 11:11 AM, 12:30 PM, 1:30 PM and 2:30 PM.
Each time slot is divided into stations and each station needs a total of 6- to 9-volunteers each. Facemasks, gloves and hairnets will be required.
When you register, you must first select the time slot you want, and then select which station you wish to join. There will be a drop down menu for each time slot that will allow you to choose which station you want. When a specific station becomes full, it will no longer be listed as an option under its specific time slot, so you will need to pick an alternate station.
NOTE: If you need childcare, please sign-up for the 9:45 AM meal pack.
If the station you would like to register for is no longer an option in the drop down menu it is because that station is full. If you have any trouble registering, or need more information, please contact Alison Morrow.
