Each month, Love the Hungry designates a Saturday for individuals and small groups to participate in a packaging session. It’s a great opportunity for students, families, local business teams, and other groups to join together for a fun and meaningful service event. Individuals and families are welcome, or you can recruit 10 – 12 volunteers to fill a complete packaging line. Volunteers as young as six years may participate with adult supervision. A suggested donation of $25 per person helps offset the cost of packaging supplies and delivery.

Upcoming dates and start times include:

Saturday, February 23 10 AM

Saturday, March 30 10 AM

Saturday, April 13 9 AM

All small group sessions take place at the LTH Packaging Center, 4209 Gardiner View Avenue. To learn more or to register, please phone 502-459-9199.

Donate Today. Help Complete the Mission.

The mission isn’t complete until the children are fed.

It’s been a great year!  More than 4,800 volunteers of all ages have participated in Love the Hungry packaging sessions – producing 800,000+ fortified Nutri-Plenty servings.  Every meal provides nourishment and hope to children and families that are most vulnerable to hunger.

However, the ongoing humanitarian mission in South Sudan is in crisis.  Supplies have been depleted and 900 orphaned children are at risk of no longer receiving the daily meals that provide the essential nutrients needed for better health.  A nine-month supply of Nutri-Plenty servings is ready to be shipped, but additional funding of $10,000 is needed to offset the shipping costs and expedite delivery.

Will you help complete the mission with a year-end donation?  Your gift will directly benefit this special appeal and ensure that the mission in South Sudan is fulfilled.  The need is urgent, and we ask for your prayerful consideration.
