Sunday: 9 & 11 AM
You’ll register to serve at a specific campus for about an hour and a half. If you’d like to serve longer than that, please register for multiple timeslots. This will help us keep track of headcounts in our buildings. Before you pack, you’ll watch an instructional video together. Then, you’ll gear up with gloves and hairnets and get to packing, sealing and boxing meals in an assembly line.
This service opportunity is suitable for kids! There will not be childcare.
You will pack in groups no larger than 10 people. Please plan to wear your own mask the entire time. We’ll provide hand sanitizer, gloves and hairnets. Each station will be cleaned and restocked in between timeslots. Please cancel your registration should you become ill and do not enter the building if you’re feeling symptoms of illness.
Flatirons has partnered with Lifeline Christian Mission on this project. Lifeline will oversee international shipping and has standing relationships with the partners who will receive and distribute the meals. The food may take several months to reach its destination, depending on international customs, weather, political environments, etc.
Our intention is to approach global missions in partnership with trusted organizations who maintain in-country leadership. We believe that God is using our international partners in culturally-relevant ways that empower communities with dignity and Jesus’ love. We see our role as offering the time, talent, and resources we’ve been gifted with to come alongside our international partners as they directly engage with their local communities. We are happy for our partners to be the ones who distribute this food and offer additional outreach in their areas of expertise.
Rice and beans are staples in many diets around the world. Combined with the dry vitamins that are added to each pack, they make a quality, high-nutrient, filling hot meal.
