You(th) vs. Hunger
March 23, 2024 – Saint Theresa Parish Fights Hunger
You(th) Vs. Hunger is a food packaging ministry in coordination with Cross Catholic Outreach. It brings people together to feed the hungry in countries around the world. The food is an innovative and nutritious blend of rice, beans, soy, dried vegetables and vitamins or macaroni and cheese and vitamins. A single bag yields 6 complete meals. Our volunteers will take ingredients packaged in bulk and measure and weigh them to make individual bags of a complete meal.
We will have volunteers as young as 5 years of age and as old as over 100 years of age package food. Children from 3 years or older who do not want to package will be in the preschool room making cards to put in the boxes. There will be a nursery for children younger than 3.
Each meal cost $0.30, so we need to raise ~ $30,000 for 100,000 meals. You can donate online. It is a 1-day annual event, from 8 AM – 4 PM where about 12-14 tables with 12-15 volunteers at each table will form an assembly line to package the food into individual bags in 1 to 2 hour shifts. We will need 400+ volunteers that day!

Also, it has been such a pleasure and honor to help St. Theresa pack meals these past 8 years. This will be our 7th event, after which our total meals packed over 8 years will be over 740,000 meals. I think it is time for me to step down. I would love to support someone as they take the lead for You(th) vs Hunger at St. Theresa after this year’s event. If you are interested in seeing the program continue and would like to take the reins, please contact me at email@example.com God bless all of you. Rachel Revelle
