Hunger Bowl

Every year on Super Bowl Sunday, we partner with Lifeline Christian Mission to pack 100,000 meals to send to poverty stricken school children in Grand Goave, Haiti. We call this church-wide event, ‘Hunger Bowl.’

These shelf-stable meals are loaded with nutrition packed by hundreds of volunteers and then loaded onto pallets to be immediately shipped. Upon arrival they are distributed to children in need and they help to make a major impact in the daily fight against malnutrition.

For more information on the impact these meals make, please watch the Lifeline Christian Mission video below.

Do for one what you would like to be able to do for all.

Our Goal

Our goal is to pack 20,000 meals in four separate one hour sessions in the Family Life Center. To do this we need 108 volunteers per hour on the morning of Super Bowl Sunday (usually the first Sunday in February). That’s over 400 volunteers that are needed.

What to expect

The work is fairly simple and easy, making it a great service opportunity for Elementary-age children, teenagers and/or adults.

Meal packing times are 8:30 to 9:30 AM, 9:45 to 10:45 AM, 11:00 AM to Noon and 12:15 to 1:15 PM. Our most popular meal pack times are 9:45 and 11:00 PM, so if you want to participate then you will need to register early.

PLEASE NOTE: Childcare for young children will not be offered during the 8:30 AM or 12:15 PM meal pack time.

Get registered!

Each Hunger Bowl station will have a captain and 15 team members (for 16 total). When a station fills up, registration will automatically close. Children, teens, couples, families, Bible studies and Life Groups are all encouraged to register together or as individuals.

Below is a list of times and designated stations. Parents with young children are encouraged to sign-up for stations offered during the 9:45 or 11:00 AM hours as they can utilize the Children’s Ministry for childcare.

Registration is now open!

Registration usually begins before Christmas and ends a few days before the Hunger Bowl. If you have any trouble registering, or need more information, please contact Alison Morrow.
