November 16-17, 2018
Coming November 16-17, 2018 at the Charlotte Motor Speedway, we are hosting the largest packing event ever in Charlotte! In 2014, Tacos 4 Life opened their door with a new kind of restaurant. With a desire to feed more than just our own hunger, we dream of making a difference in those who are starving in this world. So with every taco, quesadilla, salad or rice bowl sold at Tacos 4 Life, one meal is donated to Feed My Starving Children. Those very meals from the Charlotte area will be assembled right here on November 16-17 by people just like you!Volunteer Now

Charlotte MobilePack FAQs
Where is this year’s MobilePack?
Charlotte Motor Speedway
5555 Concord Pkwy S, Concord, NC 28027
What is a MobilePack?
While much of Feed My Starving Children’s meals come from permanent packing sites, every year local groups around the country organize “MobilePacks” where local volunteers have the chance to assemble nutritious meals for malnourished children. This is our first MobilePack here in Charlotte and we will be packing 186,624 meals.
What will I do?
Our MobilePack is divided into two-hour packing shifts. During the two hours, you will be given instructions, gather around a station made for about 20 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 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.Volunteer Now
