HAND TO HAND
PACKING FOOD TO FEED THE WORLD
What is Hand to Hand?
What is 'Hand to Hand'?Hand to Hand is a Church-based and community-focused foodpacking event. It's a great way to engage your church with practical social justice around the world, as well as developing fellowship and drawing in your local community.
Food packing is very simple and creates an end-resource which is sent by Feed The Hungry to help some of the poorest children around the world.
In the United States and elsewhere in Europe, foodpacking is fairly well known. In 2017, over 300 million meals were packed in the USA and sent overseas.
In the UK, foodpacking is relatively new, although is becoming more common, especially in the corporate sector. Feed The Hungry takes foodpacking and makes it relevant for churches.

The Cost of Food PackingThere is a cost to running a food packing event; the rice, soya, lentils and microneutrients all have a cost to them, as well as the bags, boxes, labels and transport.
We try to keep the cost of putting on a food packing event to as low as possible. For Hand to Hand events, this is calculated at 19.5p per meal packed, which is significantly lower than the industry standard of 30p to 35p per meal. There is a minimum number of meals that need to be packed at a single event, although this varies by location. Please get in touch for details.
