Working Together to Package Meals ACROSS Manatee County, FOR Manatee County

Put September 18th on your calendar!

Get you team together and register for this first annual event to provide Meals on Wheels with 100,000 meals.

Meals Across Manatee will reach across Manatee County bringing volunteers, businesses and our community together for a hands-on food packaging event. This event, sponsored by the Manatee Sunrise Kiwanis Club and Kids Against Hunger, will have teams of 10 people working in shifts in several locations across the county for a 12 hour marathon. The packaging lines will be running consistently during that time, with one location starting up when one finishes. Teams can consist of families, church groups, youth groups, police/firefighters, corporate teams or a group of friends who want to participate in this fun, rewarding experience. Each team of 10 must raise a minumum of $575 to participate for a one hour shift. Individuals who want to participate can donate $57.50 and will be assigned to a team.
