On Saturday, September 12, LTDF will host a meal packing event in the parking lot of the Snohomish Events Center. The foundation hopes to pack 150,000 meals and raise $50,000. One-third of the meals are slated for people in Snohomish County, and the remainder will be shipped to Tanzania with the help of FFCC.
Friends and Family Community Connection was founded by Dream Dinners franchise owner, Phil Harris over 8 years ago in California.
"FFCC has packaged and distributed over 9 million meals in communities around the world. Dream Dinners and The Living the Dream Foundation are proud to host a meal packaging event in Snohomish," said Dream Dinners co-founder, Tina Kuna.
An event of this magnitude could not be done without the help of volunteers and donations. Volunteer for an hour or more along with other members of the community for this fun and fast-paced event. The LTDF is hoping for 500 volunteers of all ages.
Volunteers can expect stations for food assembly, bag sealing, box packing and even an area for kids to color and decorate the boxes for the children who will be receiving them here and abroad.
There will also be a Trade Bazaar with African items for sale and snacks for purchase. It will be a fun and high-energy event raising awareness for the fight against hunger worldwide.
