On April 1st, 2017 at the Peterborough Sport and Wellness Centre we have the opportunity and challenge to package 200,000 highly nutritious meals for people struggling with hunger around the world and right here in our neighbourhoods. This will be our second step toward our goal of packaging one million meals for people in need.
The goal of this event is to engage the people of Peterborough to make a difference in the lives of others. In order to do this, we will provide and volunteer to package One Million Meals using Kids Against Hunger Canada’s model of food packaging. We would like individuals from various social, religious, sport, scholastic, business and municipal groups to form teams who will engage in friendly competition to assemble as many meals as they can in a two hour period.
This will be a fun, enthusiastic and meaningful opportunity for the citizens of Peterborough to positively impact the lives of others! Won’t you join us for this excellent opportunity to make a major difference in the lives of others?
In order to manage paying for the food everyone’s assistance ie required in raising the funds. To package 200,000 meals at a cost of 28 cents each requires we raise $56,000.
This year, 2017 is Canada’s 150 Birthday and in honour of this, we will be sending the 200,000 meals to Canada’s First Nations in Northern Ontario. Not only is this donation in Honour and Recognition of our First Nations, but also recognizing a tremendous need and support for Canada’s First Nations of Northern Ontario.
