Pleasanton Middle School Packaging Event
Date & Time: Thursday, October 12th / 8 AM – 2:30 PM
Location: MPR – Pleasanton Middle School
How: We will have 90-110 students every 1/2 hour, move through a
process line starting right at 8:00. Each classroom will have a
rotation time. With 1300 students we will need 6 1/2 hours of
packing time and should finish right around 2:30 pm.
What We Need: We are asking for lots of parent participation! We need
a minimum of 20 cleared parent volunteers for the whole day along with our Student Leadership Students.
How the Event Works:
Participants help package a rice & soy casserole fortified with 21 essential vitamins and minerals, 6 dehydrated vegetables, and chicken flavoring. This soy (52% protein) and nutrient-rich formula reverses the starvation process. Each package Contains 6 Servings and can be prepared in about twenty minutes by adding it to boiling water. Once it is packaged, the food is boxed and shipped to locations where we have "feet on the ground" to accept the food and get it to the children who need it most. This video will help you understand how and why we do what we do.
