Engage Church, Generosity Feeds, business partners, and several service organizations, like A Bridge of Hope Ministries will undertake a program on Sunday March 29th to prepare 10,000 meals to help struggling families with children in Memphis.
The volunteers will package nutritious meals for those children in need at Engage Church meeting in the Clark Opera Memphis Center located at 6745 Wolf River Blvd. in East Memphis. The event will be starting at 10:00 a.m. Each meal includes a dried black bean and rice mix, made with all natural products, free of preservatives like MSG, nitrate, and also non-GMO.
Once the meals are prepared, they will be distributed through charitable organizations and schools in the Memphis area for children with food insecurities to take home.
The public can participate, as well as donate towards the cause. We are asking for volunteers, sororities, fraternities, youth groups, church groups, and everyone to come and volunteer. Wear the shirt of your participating organization or church that day, so we can see and celebrate all of the volunteer groups. We will be having a party afterwards in celebration of the 10,000 meal packed and to celebrate your selfless service. If you know of people or groups that need some of these meals, please let us know, so we can prepare accordingly.
