This year, in the wake of Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria, we have expanded the mission of this event to collect donations for those who have been impacted in the Caribbean region. Donations will only be collected the Saturday of the event. We are collecting: Clothing, Shoes, Diapers for adults & infants, Tarps, Kerosene Stoves and Gas Operated Chain Saws.
Sponsorship is a great way to support a good cause while reaching a wide audience to promote your business. Sponsorships are also tax-deductible. We have a variety of sponsorship opportunities detailed here.
Questions about sponsorship? Feel free to reach out to Michaela Kennedy at MKennedy@stmarkspbg.org or (561) 623-2623
We also need volunteers to help set-up before the event, assist during the event, and break-down and clean-up once all of the meals are packaged. This is a great opportunity for all you clean and neat folks out there!
Volunteers are not asked to pay the registration fee, but all donations are welcome!
Bring your enthusiasm and excitement! We have a blast at this event each year, coming together as a community to serve through God’s love.

Through registration fees and generous donations and sponsorships, St. Mark’s and our co-presenters are able to fund our annual Food Packing For Haiti event.
How Event Costs Are Underwritten
Haiti is the poorest country in the Northern Hemisphere where food insecurity and acute malnutrition run rampant. Proper nutrition is crucial in the first few years of life, and is pivotal in establishing and maintaining a good foundation that has implications on a child’s future physical and mental health, academic achievement, and economic productivity.
Each of the 75,000+ meals we package goes directly to a family in need to ensure that Haitian children grow up strong, healthy and ready to take on the world! Each package has a shelf life of 3 years, promising a happy and healthy future wherever they go.
Who The Meals Benefit
Are you more of a behind-the-scenes kind of person? Are you unable to participate in the event but would still like to help our cause? Food Packing For Haiti needs your help, too! This event would be impossible without financial donations from people like you! At $0.25 a meal, it costs nearly $25,000.00 to produce this event.
Generous donations of any amount are needed and readily welcomed. Whether you are an individual, a supportive parish within the diocese or are looking for a corporate sponsorship opportunity, financial gifts are crucial to combating food insecurity and achieving our mission. Donations are tax deductible.
