Due to the COVID-19 pandemic we will not be having our FeedGalveston event in May as was previously planned. Our hope and prayer is to meet with you, our faithful volunteers, in September to package food for our neighbors in need.
We appreciate your interest and support of FeedGalveston. You can help our efforts to feed the hungry in Galveston County by participating in our next food packaging event and/or by making a monetary donation to FeedGalveston. Checks can be mailed or dropped off at the church office, First Lutheran, 2401 Winnie, Galveston 77550. Kindly make checks payable to First Lutheran and reference FeedGalveston on the memo line.
Hunger is the world’s number one health risk. It kills more people every year than AIDS, malaria, and tuberculosis combined. Over 50,000 Galveston County residents face food insecurity every day, and the The Galveston County Food Bank collects, sorts, warehouses and distributes over 7 million pounds of food each year. Through our package meal assembly line system, we enable volunteers to meet at scheduled event days to package over 50,000 meals in under 4 hours.
Whether you can help package meals, lift heavy boxes, put stickers on packages, or just want to greet people at the door, Feed Galveston needs your help!
We use an assembly line style that was invented by the Outreach Program. One person working on an Outreach Program packaging line can package 200 meals in just one hour. At our last Packaging Event, we completed over 50,000 meals in under 3 hours with about 100 volunteers, and a large delivery truck from the Galveston County Food Bank loaded them for us and immediately took them to their warehouse facility in Texas City!
It’s really a lot of fun to mix and laugh with other volunteers in the area, the the satisfaction of helping those who are hungry is a great feeling.
