PACKING IN THE PANTRY

Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year for Backpack Buddies!

Individuals, families, groups, and corporation can join us in solving the hunger issue in our community. Meal packs are assembled on a weekly basis and volunteers from the community are encouraged and welcomed to assist us at all packing events.

Our Packing Schedule

1st Sunday of the month: 10:00am*

2nd Sunday of the month: 5:00pm

3rd Sunday of the month: 10:00am*

4th Sunday of the month: 5:00pm

* additional volunteers are needed from 8:30am-9:00am to move food from the pantry to the packing location (multi-purpose room)

There is no need to sign up - everyone is invited to come and join us to prepare the weekly packs. If you are planning to bring a large group (+10 people) please email us at backpackbuddies@galileeumc.org so we can be prepared for you.

Due to church wide special events, the packing schedule may change.
