880 Volunteers Needed - We need your support!

On February 24th the Rotary Club of Grande Prairie is teaming up with Rise Against Hunger to assist in a global initiative to help roughly the 795 million people or 1 in 9 that suffer from chronic hunger.

We have a goal to package 285,120 meals that will impact the lives of people around the globe, who are in need of emergency food crisis relief and we need YOU! 

We are asking for only 2 HOURS of your time on February 24th. Anyone can participate 4 years or older. What a great opportunity to get the whole family involved! We have seated positions for seniors, disabled, or those who need to sit. 

What to expect? The event consists of approximately 800 workers total, 200 at each of our four shifts (9am12pm3pm or 7pm) creating an assembly line to bag a meal that will feed 6 people. Each bag consists of healthy ingredients including rice, soy, dehydrated vegetables and a flavoring mix that includes 23 essential vitamins and minerals into small meal packages. The assembling happens very quickly and we plan to achieve a goal of 285,125 packaged meals in one short day. Just by the efforts of a few members of our community pitching in for 2 hours.

Where? D Coy Armory - 9005-101 Street Grande Prairie
