About 2019 Orlando Join The Pack

Join The Pack is Food For The Poor's high-energy community food packing event where participants do a fun-filled activity in an atmosphere where nearly attendees are eager to give back, and make an impact!

Combat Hunger Globally
Food For The Poor is partnering with Feed My Starving Children to provide 100,000 specially formulated meals for children in Guatemala. We are taking a holistic approach by also raising funds to provide homes for six Guatemalan families.

Give Back Locally
Participants are encouraged to bring canned goods to the event that will benefit the local community this Thanksgiving season. The food will be donated to Second Harvest Food Bank for distribution free of charge to the needy in the Central Florida Community.

How to Join The Pack

Register as an individual, join or create a fundraising team and help raise funds to purchase the provided dehydrated foods for the meal packs.

Each Join The Pack team consists of 10 volunteers committed to meeting a required cumulative team goal of $500. With 10 people raising $50 each, your team will meet its goal before you know it! You may register as an individual or have a team with less than 10 members. Your group is asked to fundraise $50 for each person on the team. For example, a small team of five individuals commits to raising $250. We invite business employees, community clubs, students, churches, youth groups and families to form Join The Pack teams.

We will have incentives and acknowledgments for top fundraisers, so have some fun with your fundraising. Your donation is what makes it possible to provide these lifesaving meals and build homes! See the fundraising rewards and some tips below.
