Outreach is an international 501(c)(3) non-profit, which has packaged and distributed over 580 million meals to hungry children and their families since 2004 - and it’s Chicago area associate, Feed6, which has created nearly 5 million nutritious meals for our local hungry and food insecure. Through its innovative COVID-modified food packaging program, Outreach and Feed6 bring together dedicated volunteers - in church halls, school gyms, and conference centers - each prepared to donate time and money to package meals for the hungry. These are extraordinary spirit-enriching events of giving and caring in which anyone of any age or background can participate and extend love to those in need. 

Packed with Love Volunteers are organized into small group, socially-distant, assembly lines, preparing delicious, nutritious meals of pasta and cheese - all fortified with soy protein, nutrients, and vitamins - and bagged, labeled, weighed, and boxed employing COVID safety and sanitation precautions. It’s a work of joy - with music, entertainment, and the opportunity to share an extraordinary experience.
