INDIANAPOLIS — Volunteers are needed to help with Pack Away Hunger's ninth annual "Pack Friday" event on Nov. 26.

Volunteers will pack 50,000 Nutri-Plenty® Meals to then be distributed to local food pantries. The meals use a blend of rice, soy, vegetables, vitamins and minerals. 

“After a virtual event in 2020, we are so excited to return to an in-person packing experience,” shared Pack Away Hunger Executive Director, Abigail Harlan. “Our community is still recovering from the effects of the pandemic and this event gives volunteers a fun, hands-on way to provide relief for people who continue to suffer from food insecurity.”

The event will be held at The Sycamore at Mallow Run in Bargersville.

"Pack Friday" volunteers can choose from two shifts on Friday, Nov. 26 from 9 a.m. – 11 a.m. or 12 p.m. – 2 p.m. Pre-registration is required and can be done by clicking here
