Sts. Constantine & Helen Greek Orthodox Church is partnering with Outreach Feed 6!
Dear Fellow Parishioners,
The snow is finally melting and March has begun! The Lenten Season and Pascha are quickly approaching. During this time, many stop to reflect on the needs of others. This Lenten Season, our parish will be hosting a meal packaging community event to help those in need. On Saturday, April 17th, together with the organization Feed6, an Outreach International non-profit organization, Sts. Constantine & Helen will package and distribute 50,000 nutritious meals for local food banks.
The Feed6 organization kindly requests that no children under the age of 11 attend the event. Anyone
from ages 11 and up are welcome to volunteer and package the meals. Each shift can accommodate 35 people.

Outreach is an international 501(c)(3) non-profit, which has packaged and distributed over 580 million meals to hungry children and their families since 2004 - and it’s Chicago area associate, Feed6, which has created nearly 5 million nutritious meals for our local hungry and food insecure. Through its innovative COVID-modified food packaging program, Outreach and Feed6 bring together dedicated volunteers - in church halls, school gyms, and conference centers - each prepared to donate time and money to package meals for the hungry. These are extraordinary spirit-enriching events of giving and caring in which anyone of any age or background can participate and extend love to those in need.
Packed with Love
Volunteers are organized into small group, socially-distant, assembly
lines, preparing delicious, nutritious meals of pasta and cheese - all
fortified with soy protein, nutrients, and vitamins - and bagged, labeled,
weighed, and boxed employing COVID safety and sanitation
precautions. It’s a work of joy - with music, entertainment, and the
opportunity to share an extraordinary experience.
