Meals of Hope Meal Packing Event

Saturday, October 26 –

Event Time: 09:00 am - 11:00 am

Rockland Elks Lodge 1008
210 Rankin Street, Rockland

West Bay Rotary is partnering with the non-profit organization Meals of Hope from Naples, Florida to host a meal packing event and we are looking for volunteers. We will pack up to 25,000 nutritious and much needed quality food for families in need in the Midcoast area. These will be distributed to local food pantries that have expressed an interest in receiving the meals. We are also contacting additional local organizations that may be interested in receiving meals. The mission of Meals of Hope is “Communities coming together to end hunger”. They have developed five meals with added vitamins, minerals, and proteins to supplement an unbalanced diet. Because Meals of Hope is AIB Certified, this food is held to The American Institute of Baking International’s stringent standards, which require organizations to use best practices for food handling and distribution. In fact, they were awarded the “Recognition of High Achievement” by AIB for scoring in the top 90% of all food facilities. For more information about Meals of Hope, please go to To watch a packing event in action, go to We need 75 volunteers to help with this meal packing event. West Bay Rotary is reaching out to local Rotary clubs, police departments, food pantries, and other organizations to recruit volunteers, but we welcome all volunteers to help make this a successful community event. To volunteer or for more information about the West Bay Rotary-Meals of Hope meal packing event, contact Etienne Perret at or 207.632.4057. The cost of each meal is about 25 cents. Donations can be made to our charitable foundation to help cover the cost of these meals. Checks may be mailed to: Rotary of West Bay Charitable Foundation, PO Box 1033, Camden, ME 04843. Please write “Meals of Hope” in the memo section of your check. Secure credit card payments may be made at This event is only possible with the support of our local community, so thank you for volunteering and/or donating.
