Feed Fauquier will take place on Saturday, October 12, 2019. To participate, you will need to register online, $10/person for each hour you’d like to participate. Your $10 = 33 meals. If you would like to pack meals for more than one hour, you will need to pay $10 for each hour. Your registration costs will go directly to help pay for the meals. (it costs $15,000 for the 50,000 meals, raising some of the funds from participants and some from sponsors)
Each one hour time slot has a capacity of 125 participants. We do encourage groups to participate. Group leaders can sign up their whole group and work together at one assembly table together. Groups that are 10-12 people can reserve an entire table. If you are signing up as an individual or family, there will be a place on the registration form to indicate if you’d like to be placed at a table with other family/friends/co-workers. We strive to make sure the placements are accurate and you can participate with those you know!
Once a time slot is filled up, we will update the website and registration page. Some of the more popular time slots fill up before the event, so it is important to register as soon as possible!
What is involved in a packing event? Here’s a pdf to explain: “Bird’s Eye View”
Last year we packed 50,000 Pasta With Italian Basil Sauce. This year the meal we are packing has not been decided on yet….stay tuned! Each meal contains six servings.
We give the nutritious dry meals to the Fauquier Food Bank, Clara’s House Food Pantry, Fauquier Fish’s Weekend Power Pack, and any other local organization that helps distribute meals to less-fortunate families. In 2015, the Fauquier Community Food Bank alone supported just over 5.5% of the county’s population.
The registration time slots are:
This is a great event to bring your family to (even young kids can participate!), a team from work, get service hours, connect with other service-minded people from our community, hang out with a friend, and simply help meet a real need in our community. Anyone and everyone is welcome.
