Press Release: April 2, 2015 Minnetonka Rotary to Host 2nd Annual Outreach Food Packaging Event
The Minnetonka Rotary will host the second annual Outreach Food Packaging Event on April 18th 2015 at Lindberg Center in Hopkins High School, located at 2400 Lindbergh Drive, Minnetonka, MN 55305. Entry is on the north side at entrance “M”. Six area Rotary clubs, Eden Prairie AM, Edina, Minneapolis City of Lakes, Minnetonka, Mound-Westonka, and St. Louis Park Noon Clubs will also be participating.
The goal for this one day event will be to build 45,000 packaged meals for distribution to local food shelves and food banks. These packaged dinner entrees of rice and beans will be completely distributed to individuals and families within two weeks. With such an overwhelming need, this contribution is something everyone who volunteers realizes that their efforts made a difference in someone's life.
The ingredients, packaging equipment, packaging supplies and training will be provided by OUTREACH. The link to the volunteer sign up is below and we will be working from 9am until noon with three one hour slots available.
Rotary is an organization that believes in Service Above Self. If you are reading this and you want to help be part of the solution in the world, we can put you to work helping us to accomplish this worthwhile project. Although these 45,000 meals won’t solve all the worlds problems they will solve 45,000 problems. You don’t need to spend all day, but feel free to come and spend as much time as you can packaging meals.
