Pack a Meal, Change a Life!

Collegiate United Methodist Church/Wesley Foundation in Ames is hosting a food packing event! This event is open to the public for ages 5 and up and will take place in Wesley Hall. We will be packing 20,000 meals in 2 hours. The meals will go to school children in Tanzania, encouraging children in poverty to attend school to get both a meal and an education.

Wondering what you’ll be doing as a volunteer? Here’s a quick overview (PDF).
