2017 Meal Marathon

Join us as we package as many nutritious, rice-based meals as we can. These meals are then sent to children in Haiti. This is a great opportunity to meet the needs of those across the world!

We have many volunteer opportunities.  Some are all day (8am-4:30pm) and some are in shifts. Please pick the one that works best for you!

How It Works

Participants work together at stations to package the rice-based food. One participant can package about 300 meals in 2 hours!

1. Funnel Station 
Five participants gather around a funnel to fill the bags with rice, soy, dried vegetables, and vitamins.
2. Weigh Station 
The bags are weighed to make sure they contain a specified weight for uniform distribution.
3. Sealing Station 
The bags are sealed. This gives the food a three-year shelf life through the food will be eaten long before then.
4. Boxing Station 
Sealed bags are boxed, palletized, and then loaded onto a truck or container for their final voyage.

Finally, the boxes are shipped by cargo to Haiti. Once released from Haitian customs, the boxes are unloaded into Lifeline's warehouse. They are distributed to Lifeline's schools & nutritious programs and to mission organizations to be prepared for the hungry!
