Volunteers will work together at units of 15-20 people, packing non-perishable meals in an assembly-line fashion. The meal packing process includes: (1) combining ingredients (rice, soy, dehydrated vegetables, and a vitamin/mineral powder) through funnels into our UMD-branded TAH bags; (2) weighing the bags on scales to ensure they are the proper weight; (3) sealing the bags using self-time heat-sealers; and (4) packing bags into our TAH boxes. We always make sure to have chairs in the room for anyone who would like to sit down during part of their volunteer time, or for younger kids to stand on and make participation easier.
The event will be held in the Adele H. STAMP Grand Ballroom, and is open to all members of our community including UMD students, staff, faculty, alumni, parents/family members, and local community members. We've had volunteers as young as 4 and as old as 90 years old. Please help us spread the word and invite your friends to join you in fighting local hunger!
