FoodStock 2014: YOUR Opportunity to Feed the Hungry


Stop Hunger Now is returning to Dunwoody United Methodist Church on August 16th and the event is going to be bigger and better than ever. The goal has been set at 300,000 meals in one day, and Dunwoody needs your help to make FoodStock 2014 a success!

An estimated 1,100 volunteers are needed to pull off one of Metro Atlanta’s largest single-day food packaging events. Volunteers will package meals made of collected dried food, such as rice, soy, protein, dehydrated vegetables.

Participants need only bring themselves, along with a determined, positive attitude.

“This is a mission participation event, no money is requested from those that attend,” says FoodStock co-chair Sean Taylor.

This is a worthy cause that all ages can participate in. Last year’s age range was 4-90 years old. It’s a simple, fun mission that brings the community together for a common goal.

Here is a list of ways the you can participate in FoodStock 2014
