Pack With Us

Join a Pack or Volunteer


It doesn’t take long to make a difference. In just two hours, a single volunteer can pack 400 meals for hungry Hoosiers nearby.

  • It’s fun. Pack with us once and you will become a repeat volunteer.
  • It’s family friendly. We offer a positive, hands-on experience that is engaging for kids aged 6 and up.


COVID-19 Packs  We’re hosting smaller packs to accommodate families and small groups. Utilizing social distancing and sanitary guidelines along with personal protective measures, these packs are a safe environment for giving back and are providing meals to depleted food banks during this time of uncertainty and great need. In 1 hour you can pack an average of 1000 meals for hungry Hoosiers. Learn more and sign up for safe meal packing due to COVID-19.

Community Packs Take part in a public pack at our Indianapolis headquarters on the third Saturday of most months and in November for our special Thanksgiving pack. The mission of our community packing events is to give kids, families and small groups the opportunity to volunteer together at a reduced cost. Learn more about our community packs and see the upcoming event calendar by visiting our Community Meal Pack page.  For large groups and corporate packing opportunities, please read below about our private sponsored packs.

Million Meal Marathon Join thousands of volunteers and members of the Indianapolis Colts at Lucas Oil Stadium as we aim to pack 1 million meals in a single day. Stay tuned for updates on this fall’s 2020 Marathon.  Learn more.

Private Sponsored Packs Pack onsite at our Indianapolis headquarters, or let us come to you. Either way, we’ll handle everything from setup to tear down and make sure your pack exceeds your expectations. Contact us to design a meal packing event that meets your group’s needs and desire to help hungry Hoosiers, or visit our Sponsor a Pack page.

Make a difference for hungry families in Indiana.


Volunteer when it works for your schedule. In just a few hours, you can make a difference. You can view and sign up for volunteer shifts on our page.


We welcome volunteers of all ages and abilities. It’s great for families – children over the age of 5 can assist in our volunteer activities.



Q: Will I be packing meals?
A: More than likely you will not pack meals. Meal pack participants have typically paid out of pocket or through sponsorship to be able to cover the cost of the ingredients that they pack. Volunteers will do other things to assist with the meal packing events or help with entirely different tasks in our warehouse.

Q: Can I bring my kids, and how old do they have to be to volunteer?
A: You can absolutely bring your kids! We typically say any child over the age of 5 should be able to assist in our volunteer activities.

Q: What should I wear to volunteer?
A: Comfortable clothes that you don’t mind getting a little dirty!

Q: How long do the volunteer opportunities usually last?
A: Our packing events vary in length. An average meal pack is 2 hours long and general warehouse opportunities vary but average about 2 hours long as well.

Q: Are there different volunteer opportunities available throughout the city?
A: Yes! We partner with companies all over the city of Indianapolis and the state of Indiana and often need volunteer help at these locations.
