Need Jasper County Volunteers for Hunger Relief

NEWTON, Iowa Holy Trinity Lutheran Church will host the Jasper County Hunger Relief (formerly Jasper County Take Away Hunger) meal packaging event on Saturday, April 20, 2024, in one-hour slots starting at 9:00 a.m.

The Jasper County Hunger Relief Board is excited to introduce new packaging assembly line events that package simple nutritious meals that follow safety and health guidelines. Volunteers are asked to form a team of twelve people for one hour of time, and a donation of $35 per person or $420 per team. The donations help cover the costs of the meals packaged for families with food insecurity. Everyone is encouraged and invited to participate in this community service event. This includes youth groups, service clubs, businesses, church groups, and individuals.

Contact Bill Bennett by email at [email protected] or by phone at 515-257-6460 to reserve a one-hour time slot for your team. The deadline to register is Sunday, April 14, 2024. The meals are primarily distributed locally in the Jasper County area through food banks, blessing boxes, other non-profits, and churches.

Jasper County Hunger Relief is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt nonprofit corporation dedicated to the goal of reducing hunger and food insecurity. Our approach to achieving this goal is the packaging of highly nutritious, vitamin-fortified meals by volunteers at locations
around Jasper County, and the distribution of those meals to food insecure children and
their families.
