What to Expect at a Meal Packing Event
No special skills or training are needed to pack at an event – just the desire to roll up your sleeves and dig in! When you arrive, a Many Hands Many Meals team leader may show the group a short video describing the history and mission of Many Hands Many Meals or a how-to slideshow. After that, you’ll wash up, don your hairnets (or wear your own baseball cap), and choose a spot at a packing station.
You may be doing a variety of roles from filling bags with food, weighing bags, sealing bags, or packing bags into shipping boxes. Team leaders will be at each station to explain each phase of the process and to provide assistance.
