Event Details

The Rotary Club of Winnetka-Northfield,
The Winnetka Community House, The Volunteer Center,
and other local community groups,
will pack 100,000 highly nutritious meals
for hungry people in Nicaragua and Local Food Pantries.

Food Packing Montage

We will have up to 12 tables of 12 volunteers working one of (3) 2 hour shifts. The first shift starts at 8:30 a.m., the 2nd starts at 11 and the 3rd shift starts at 2 ending at 4:00 p.m..

Sign up for a table using the tickets above. A participant fee of $25 is required of all participants, which will help offset the cost of bulk food, packaging materials and transportation. Participants will also pay a small transaction fee. Each participant will receive one complimentary raffle ticket (more may be purchased at $20 each/ 6 for $100). Youth groups wishing to participate but finding the fee to be a barrier may ask the Rotary club for help in securing a sponsor for their table. Email [email protected] with your request.

We will also need "floaters" to help with sign in, moving packing and food materials and other event activities. You can sign up to be a floater as well.

To learn more about Kids Against Hunger and the food we will be packing, visit www.kah-fv.org.

We also need to raise funds to pay for these meals. Each meal costs $0.28 for materials, transport and distribution in Nicaragua, so we need to raise nearly $30,000. You can help in several ways:

  • Make a donation to the project via PayPal by clicking here.
  • Purchase a raffle ticket at the event or by contacting Heidi at [email protected] Each ticket costs $20, or you may purchase 6 tickets for $100. Each participant will receive one free raffle ticket!
  • Become an Event Sponsor: Email [email protected] for information about your company or group becoming a Presenting Sponsor, Community Sponsor or Table Sponsor.
