Time To Feed Hungry Kids – Texarkana Mobile Pack #4 Scheduled For Oct 28 & 29
Just seems like a couple of months ago we were packing meals for hungry kids at the Tacos 4 Life MobilePack #3, but it was way back in May. How time does fly... cause it's time to do it again.
The cool thing about being a Tacos 4 Life restaurant franchisee is you get to make a difference not only in your community by being a business owner, employing people, and changing lives at the local level, but you are also part of the big picture of helping people all over the world. In this case, we're talking about feeding hungry kids in underdeveloped countries. It's part of the promise of Tacos 4 Life, eat here and every taco you buy helps feed hungry kids.
Our next chance to do just that, called a MobilePack, is coming up fast, and we need more volunteers. Lots of them. Do you have a church group, seniors, juniors, singles? A civic organization, a volunteer group of any kind, Scout Troop that needs some service hours for October? Here is your chance to do a lot of good in a relatively short period of time.
Shifts are open on Friday and Saturday. To find out more about what time shifts are available or to go ahead and sign up right now, click here.
What Are We Packing You Ask?
They are called MannaPacks, and they will be shipped out to hungry children around the world through Feed My Starving Children, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
According to the FMSC website, a MannaPack is done in several different ways according to where it's going and what kind of nutrition is needed there. What we put together last time was their original formula called MannaPack Rice:
MannaPack Rice is an excellent source of protein, carbohydrates and key nutrients culturally acceptable worldwide for anyone over the age of one.
At the last MobilePack this year, there were enough volunteers to have five, two-hour packing sessions over a Friday and Saturday. Between all the sessions combined, they packed 108,864 meals. Enough to feed 298 kids for an entire year. That's amazing, let's do that again.
This is truly something that makes a difference and will make you feel good.
