Katy Packathon 2019

By  | 

As you have likely heard, the Feed the Hunger Packathon is coming back to the Katy area February 28–March 2, 2019!  This is a great way to serve our community. Mark your calendars now and rally your teams! 

It’s easy to get involved. There are five shifts taking place over three days at The Pavillion – Katy ISD in Katy, TX.  The Packathon needs our help to package nutritious meals for hungry children around the world and, more importantly, help spread the Gospel! 

Session 1: Thursday, February 28th 7:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.

Session 2: Friday, March 1st, 5:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m

Session 3: Friday, March 1st, 7:30 p.m. – 9:30 p.m

Session 4: Saturday, March 2nd, 9:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m

Session 5: Saturday, March 2nd, 12:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m 

Each participant will help pack for about two hours and will package around 200 meals, which is enough food to feed one child lunch for up to an entire school year!  Each meal costs only $0.28, so your $56 contribution will also help sponsor the meals and ensure they get in front of those who need them most. You can purchase a station with a team of 25 people for $1,400.00.

At the last Packathon in May 2018, community volunteers helped package 240,000 meals!  Those meals were shared with Katy Christian Ministries in Katy, The Beacon Center in Houston, throughout eastern Kentucky, in Haiti, and beyond. A portion of the food packed will also be shipped to help some of the 9,700 children rescued by Set Free Alliance. Every $56 dollars provides 200 servings to children who have been rescued from horrible situations such as slavery in rock quarries, sex trafficking, forced begging, and laboring in brick factories.  

Join the Katy Community February 28th to March 2nd, put on your hairnet, and feed the hunger both spiritually and physically.  Register now at feedthehunger.org/katy.
