Volunteer at the Food 4others MobilePack

The Food 4others MobilePack is an annual event involving Bay Area volunteers in hand-packing nutritious meals for severely malnourished children around the world. These meals are shipped to partners in over 70 countries and distributed by orphanages, clinics, schools, missions, and community feeding programs.

Check out how you can turn hunger into hope with your own two hands! View the video below.




Volunteer to pack!

Volunteers sign up for 2-hour shifts at the MobilePack. After a brief orientation, you can choose from a variety of jobs on the packing floor: scooping, weighing, sealing, or boxing the meals. For a more active job, join the Warehouse Crew. For a seated job, join the Labeling Team. (Minimum age: 5 yrs)

What Is a MobilePack Partner?

A group that commits to donating funds to help cover the cost of the meals they'll pack. Since each volunteer packs an average of $50 worth of meals, MP Partners are encouraged to set a $50/volunteer goal.*

Become a MobilePack Partner today!

*A minimum $30/volunteer commitment is required to become an MP Partner.


Each meal costs only 24 cents, which means every donation makes a difference. Will you help turn hunger into hope for a hungry child today?
