St. Louis World Food Day 2016, an annual food-packaging event to help feed hungry people living locally and abroad, will take place on Friday, October 14, 2016 from 9:00 am – 7:00 pm at John Burroughs School (755 S. Price Road, 63124).
Join other St. Louisans, ages 7+, and help assemble rice/soy protein meals and macaroni & cheese meals to help alleviate the suffering of people in need. At the 2015 event, 362,556 meals were assembled in a single day! We will once again partner with the St. Louis Area Foodbank (for local meal distribution) and the Outreach Program (for international distribution to Tanzania). The cost to participate is $10 students/educators; $20 adults and the funds raised from registration fees and sponsorships help defray the cost of the food packaging ingredients.
With World Health Organization statistics suggesting that a child dies every six seconds from malnutrition and related illnesses, the St. Louis World Food Day event raises awareness, increases understanding, and equips people to take action to alleviate hunger, both locally and internationally.
