Project 3 is Feeding Children Everywhere’s 3 million-meal packing event happening this August 27 – 30 in Tampa, FL. 20,000 people will gather together in the largest meal-packaging event FCE has hosted to date. Community members, business groups, churches, schools and fundraising teams will come together in Tampa to package meals for public school’s crisis food pantries across the country.
There will be a total of 391, 912 pounds of food, with 245,100 pounds of lentils, the key ingredient in our FCE Meal. Anyone can make a monumental difference in the lives of hungry children around the country. Thirty school districts from San Diego to New York City will each receive 100,000 healthy meals for their students.
For a $10 donation, people can sign up to package meals. Each ticket will go to sponsoring 40 meals for hungry children. There will be six shifts a day, and each is one hour long. The event will be hosted outdoors under climate-controlled tents, so be sure to dress comfortably. FCE is extremely excited for Project 3 and we cannot wait to see Hunger Heroes from across the nation come out to join the fight against hunger right here at home.

Together, we can send 3 million meals to our neighbors around the country!
Together, we are Feeding Children Everywhere!
