Event Planning

Help fight hunger year-round by sponsoring a hunger fight. Join us at our packaging center in West Des Moines or we’ll come to you!  And if you’re wondering what the right size meal packaging event is for you, use our 3-step Meals Calculator to help you determine.  Just enter your anticipated number of volunteers, how long you’d like them to package, and whether they’re adults or youth.  You can adjust these numbers to find that “sweet spot” for your event.  We would then welcome the opportunity to work with you to make this an awesome event for you and your team.

Please note: based upon your Estimated # of Meals we can work with you to identify how many packaging shifts would work best for your team.

Private Packaging Center Hunger Fight: This option is perfect for groups ranging in size from 10 – 130. Just bring your group and a willingness to have fun while packaging meals to feed the hungry. There is a 5,000 meal minimum required to schedule a private event. Our meals cost $.20 so we’d look to you for a minimum donation of $1,000. Packaging Center Hunger Fight Information
