Gather your team

A packaging event consists of a team of 10 to 12 people who decide to make a difference! Your team can package 1,944 meals in 45 minutes for 30 cents/meal ($583.00) - Set your goal (number of meals x 30 cents). - Recruit 1-5 teams, depending on your budget and number of available volunteers.

Fund your project

For only $1.80 you can fund one bag of six meals! $65 funds one box of 216 meals! You can hold fun fundraisers or invite donations from sponsors.

Let us do the rest

We’ll provide the equipment, meal ingredients, and your event venue. We can deliver meals to the local food bank you want to support or will partner with TAH Iowa to deliver meals to domestic or global locations where relief is most needed. Your job is to have fun packaging meals with your team!


It’s very rewarding to help feed hungry people.

it’s also important to give our youth opportunities to understand the needs of others and to respond with compassion.
