Changing This World: One Meal at a Time

The PowerDMS team had such a blast assembling meals last December that we jumped at the chance to host another food-packing event to benefit the noble mission of Change This World. Once again we cleared a large space, cranked up the music, sported hairnets and let the packing fun begin.
Feeding the needy has always been a quest the GBC is determined to conquer. Over 180,000 people worldwide go to bed hungry every single day. Let that sink in for just a minute. What’s even more depressing? The world produces enough food for everyone to consume 2,700 calories per day.
Exposure to these cold hard facts sparked the creation of Change This World in an effort to whittle that number down as much as possible. Those sobering statistics have affected us, too, so we were more than eager to do our part—not to mention have some fun with it. Check out this video to see the PowerDMS team in action.
After a quick video intro, everyone filed into efficient lines and dove into their respective roles—pouring, measuring, weighing and packaging. In less than an hour, our energetic group packaged an astonishing 4,000 meals, complete with six nutritious meals in every bag. Meals consisted of a mixture of white rice, crushed soy, a dehydrated blend of vegetables and topped off with vitamin and mineral powder. These nourishing meals are then shipped off to ensure rumbling tummies around the globe are filled with quality food and love from our team.
The GBC is a firm believer that everyone can make a difference, and together we truly can change this world, one meal or act of kindness at a time! Interested in hosting a high-energy packing event or donating to this stellar cause? Visit their website at www.changethisworld.com.
