The Feed My Starving Children All Hands on Hope MobilePackTM will be held at Incarnation Lutheran Church from April 24-28, 2024.    Over five days, we will host up to 2,000 volunteers to pack more than 600,000 meals to feed children all over the world suffering from food insecurity.   Our goal is to pack enough meals to feed 1,683 kids for one year.  This will be the 17th MobilePack hosted at Incarnation and we are looking forward to filling Incarnation Hall with enthusiastic volunteers, eager to change lives by feeding God’s kids.

Since 2007, we have hosted over 28,000 volunteers who have packed 8.6 million meals and raised over $1.66 million to combat world hunger.  We need your help in many ways to make this year’s MobilePack a success.


Visit the Volunteer Registration Page and sign up for one or more shifts to pack.  Anyone ages 5-95 is welcome to pack meals. Gather your family, friends, small groups, neighbors, co-workers, student groups, and teams to make it a fun experience for all.  There are a number of tasks during packing sessions which can be done sitting down including labeling, weighing bags and sealing.  Just ask a Specialized Volunteer in the packing room for a chair when you are ready to begin!  The days and shifts are listed below so you can start planning your shift(s) to volunteer.  All shifts are packing shifts unless otherwise noted.   For volunteer questions, please contact Deb Rykken at deb.rykken@gmail.com.

In addition to packing meals during the shifts listed above, we also need many Specialized Volunteers.  Specialized Volunteers are categorized into two groups:

  • Welcome Ambassadors (1.25 hour shifts) are responsible for greeting volunteers as they arrive, guiding and seating for orientation and distributing nametags, hairnets and jewelry bags when needed. All ages and abilities are encouraged to sign up.
  • Floor Monitors (3 hour shifts) will oversee 3-4 packing stations. Responsibilities include organizing volunteers into roles to ensure Manna Packs get filled and boxed efficiently, as well as ensuring that packing stations have all necessary supplies.  This role requires volunteers to be on their feet for the entire shift time and be able to hear and communicate effectively in a noisy environment.    This role is great for those who have packed before and are familiar with the process.    Closed toed shoes are required.
