NWA MobilePack FAQs
Where is this year’s MobilePack?
We are partnering with Camp War Eagle this year and they will be hosting the MobilePack at their new Community Center.
What is a MobilePack?
While much of Feed My Starving Children’s meals come from permanent packing sites around the country, every year local groups around the country organize “MobilePacks” where local volunteers have the chance to pack nutritious meals for malnourished children. This is our 21st MobilePack sponsored by Tacos 4 Life and the 4th in Northwest Arkansas. We will be packing 272,160 meals in 2 days.
What will I do?
Our MobilePack is divided into two-hour packing sessions. During the two hours, you will be given instructions, gather around a station made for about 12 volunteers, and assemble the ingredients of the MannaPack. This includes rice, chicken, soy, and veggies, all scientifically engineered to help starving children move from extreme malnutrition to becoming a healthy, vibrant child. It all begins with food. And you can be a part of changing a child’s life!
Can anyone participate?
All ages are welcome! Whether you are 9 or 90, there is a job for you! Most of the tasks require standing and placing ingredients in a bag. A few jobs, like the “warehouse” require heavy lifting while others, like the “labelers” allows volunteers to sit at tables and play with stickers! Even small children under the direction of parents can participate and lend a helping hand.
Can my business/organization work together?
The NWA MobilePack offers groups of all kinds the opportunity to work together in a positive, team-focused environment. Some of businesses make this MobilePack an integral part of their service programs. By volunteering for a two-hour packing shift and to raising the money to pay for the packed meals, your organization can create a real awareness of global hunger — and the reality that anyone can do something to impact the life of a child in need.
