Feeding thousands of children daily is no small task! It is only possible through the efforts of partners and volunteers like you. Through meal packaging events, your church, organization, or school can provide food for needy children in Sierra Leone throughout the year. The meals you package are shipped overseas, and cooks customize them with traditional flavors and spices, supplementing with meat when available.
Your meal packaging event is as easy as 1, 2, 3!
1.Raise the funds needed for the meals you expect to package (just 29 cents a meal). Depending on the size of your group, we recommend that you raise enough to cover 25,000–50,000 meals ($7,250–$14,500). If this isn’t possible for you, please contact us anyway; we love to connect groups to co-host meal packaging events together.
2. Recruit enough volunteers to work your event. Our staff will be happy to help you calculate how many volunteers you’ll need.
3. Using mobile meal packaging systems, your local COTN Community Representative will arrange setup of the assembly line process, provide all the supplies and training, and oversee the event.
