SECURE THE BAG: a service event coinciding with the Women of Color Beyond Belief Conference

Food insecurity is the world's number one health risk. We have all experienced hunger. Not all of us have experienced food insecurity.

Hunger is the physical sensation of needing food. Food insecurity is the circumstance of not having reliable access to it. These conditions don't discriminate. They affect people of all ages, races, religious beliefs, and genders. They happen everywhere, including Cook County, IL, where one in seven people will experience food insecurity this year.

It's not enough to be compassionate about issues like this: we have to act!

Women of Color Beyond Belief Conference is proud to partner with secular philanthropic organizations Black Nonbelievers and Foundation Beyond Belief for SECURE THE BAG, an exciting service event coinciding with the conference. We'll turn one of the conference breakout rooms into a full-fledged meal-making factory!

  • JOIN US! Click here to sign up and be part of the fun and fellowship. Teams and individuals are welcome.
  • CONTRIBUTE! Click here to help us buy bulk ingredients for the event and cover the cost of distributing the food to areas in need. Every dollar given feeds a family of 4!

On October 6, 2019 from 1pm-3pm WOCBB, BN, and FBB will hold a meal-packing session for THE OUTREACH PROGRAM, a non-profit which has supplied nearly 4 million meals worth of ingredients and meal packages to those in need.

Volunteers will work together as an assembly line to create meals from bulk ingredients. As a team, you will create meal bags that include 6 servings of nutritious meals to be distributed to local Chicago organizations. A packing team of 10 volunteers can create about 2,000 meals per hour!

Whether you can help scoop, seal, lift, or weigh materials, this is a great way to demonstrate compassion in action and bond with like-minded “beyond belief” community members.

Meal packaging is a simple, safe, and fun service event for all ages. See Outreach Program's FAQ for further details on what to expect. 

Training will be provided on-site and we are able to accommodate any special needs you may have. 

Let's build our community and help take hunger off the table!
