This will be a two-day event, during which we'll pack 400,000 meals for local children and families suffering from food insecurity. All meals we pack will be distributed through our network of over 15 local partners who make sure that our meal make it to the communities that need them most. We work with the Capital Area Food Bank, Maryland Food Bank, DC Central Kitchen, Manna Food Center, and many more. TAH is a student-run organization at UMD. Since we began packing meals on campus in December 2013, TAH has engaged over 15,000 volunteers to pack over 2,300,000 meals. For the upcoming 2018/2019 academic year, we expect to pack over 1 million meals for local families! The event will run from 9:45AM - 5:00PM in the Adele H. STAMP Grand Ballroom, and is open to all members of our community including UMD students, staff, faculty, alumni, parents/family members, and local community members. We've had volunteers as young as 4 and as old as 90 years old. Please help us spread the word and invite your friends to join you in fighting local hunger!
