Meal Pack Event

You are called to feed the hungry as a disciple of Jesus! (Matthew 25:31-46) Imagine a big, energetic assembly-line operation here at St. Gabriel, where we’ll prepare 10,000 meal packs in one afternoon to feed the hungry!  That's the "Meal Pack" event that St. Gabriel and St. Margaret Mary parishes will host on June 3, 2018 with the organization Rise Against Hunger (  We will pack 10,000 or more vitamin-fortified and protein-enriched meals for a special cause: for disaster relief or schools or hospitals in developing countries. PLEASE consider helping in any or all of these three main ways:

PRAY for the success of our event, and for those who will receive these meals.  When you sit down to eat, remember those who will go without a meal that day.

DONATE to help pay for food, supplies, and distribution.  $36 = 100 meals! A donation of $36 will pay for the ingredients and shipping of 100 meals that will be packed right here at St. Gabriel for our Meal Pack event. Please send donations in any amount payable to St. Gabriel Parish (please note “Meal Pack” on your contribution!)

SIGN UP to participate for our June 3 Meal Pack event.  At least 100 volunteers – youth and adults – can participate in the Meal Pack in the St. Gabriel Allen Center gym.  There will be two shifts of less than an hour and a half.  Please sign up online: 2018StGabrielMealPackagingEvent
