We need hands to put the meals together. The average person can help package up to 160 meals an hour.



Once packaged, the meals are given, free of charge, to regional food banks and local food pantries and schools.

Why Outreach, Inc.?

outreach logo 2Before asking yourself why you would want to be involved in this movement of people feeding those who hunger in their own counties, you may want to know why I'm all in.

I grew up in a Lutheran church and attended college and seminary in MN (yes, I am a pastor, but please don’t hold that against me). In 1997, I first heard about the 30 Hour Famine and, in 2002, went to Peru on a World Vision overseas study tour. In 2005, I packaged my first Outreach meal for starving kids in Africa. In 2010, my family and I moved to New England. The very next day, the Haiti earthquake happened. We packaged meals for 200 kids at an orphanage there. In 2011, we were challenged by the New England synod to “go where love leads and serve where love calls”. At the time one out of every four American children was going to bed hungry. We moved from Quincy to Marshfield MA, so that we could worship at a new multi-denominational church called Sanctuary. I now drive a cargo van all over the region, setting up meal packaging events with churches, schools, businesses, civic groups, the United Way, etc. During the 2011-2012 school year, we packaged almost 700,000 meals. In 2012-2013, over 1.5 million. How many we package in 2013-2014 and beyond is up to you. Our goal is to double production each year.
