Kids Against Hunger – Fox Valley began operations in June, 2007.
Packaging Events are usually for one hour at a time with two sessions being scheduled in a period. They can be planned Monday through Friday for:
- - mornings 9 to 11:30
- - afternoons 1:00 to 3:30 or 2:00 to 4:30
- - evenings 5:00 to 7:30
- - mornings only on Saturday.
Volunteers average packaging $25 to $35 worth of food for each hour. During Open Packaging each volunteer is to bring at least $25, or $50 per family, for each event.
Groups such as the Carol Stream Rotary Club, Bartlett Christian Academy, businesses creating a team-building event and others have scheduled packaging events .
Packaging is done in a building provided by Harris Bank of Roselle. At the Harris Bank at 400 E. Irving Park Road in Roselle, turn on to Lawrence and then right as if entering the Harris Bank Drive-In facility. At the rear of this property is the building with a Kids Against Hunger – Fox Valley sign on the door.
