Africa Harvest of Hope holds an annual Food Packaging Event where we package anywhere from 100,000 to 250,000 meals in one day. It is a great way for people to get involved on this side of the globe to help feed the children and the hungry in Africa.
At a Food Packaging Event, 500 volunteers gather throughout the day to package dry bulk food. The bulk food consists of rice, soy protein, vitamins, dehydrated vegetables and a dry soup base. These items are packaged in an assembly line fashion. The food is measured into small bags, weighed, sealed and placed into boxes. It is then palletized and placed in a container.
We also hold an annual Benefit to raise awareness and financial support. This benefit helps build homes for orphaned children and it is held at Wilson Creek Winery in Temecula, California.
