Better Together Food Packing Event

July 25 @ 12:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Location: American Reformed Church, Worthington, MN

Better Together Mobile Food Pack
A “Better Together” event has two missional goals:
Goal #1- Provide opportunities for cross-cultural relationship building
Goal #2- Provide nutritious food for local communities

What Will Happen: Prior to each shift, people from various culture(s) will present some educational aspect about their culture (5-10 minutes). The participants will package meals of four different types: mac and cheese, tomato basil pasta, beans and rice and apple cinnamon oatmeal. The meals include a nutritional scoop of vitamins, as well. All are designed for American food shelf tastes. The program set-up is similar to “Feed My Starving Children” but is done through “Outreach, Inc”. For more information, click here.

To see what the lines look like in action watch this video!

Food packaged will be given to local food pantries and schools.

Individuals are encouraged to take what they need to provide for their families after packaging food.
