1 million meals!

Thank you to everyone that helped pack meals for those struggling with food insecurity and malnutrition! Together we did it — we packed 1 MILLION MEALS!

What does one million meals look like?
One million meals = 70 pallets or 4,630 boxes of food.
One million meals = 250,000 oatmeal meals, 350,000 mac and cheese meals and 400,000 beans and rice meals.That’s breakfast, lunch and dinner for a family of 4 for 2.5 lifetimes. Or, food for a year for 6,410 individuals!

One million meals will provide for 43 local organizations across all of our campuses including: Olive Crest, Building a Generation, Giving Children Hope, Kingdom Causes Bellflower, Park Rapids Food Shelf, The Salvation Army, Second Harvest Food Bank, Bellflower Unified School District, Placentia Yorba Linda School District, Pine Point Elementary and more! It wouldn’t have been possible without you, Eastside! If you liked serving and want to do it again, check out “Volunteer in your community.”
