University United Food Friday

Join us to pack non-perishable meals for local families

University United Food Friday is a one-of-a-kind community volunteer event in honor of University of Montana President Seth Bodnar's inauguration and his presidential theme of service. This great team building event is an opportunity to help feed thousands of our hungry neighbors and connect volunteers with the university and our community. 

On the UM campus during University United Food Friday, over 200 volunteers will package over 8,000 dried, non-perishable meals - that's 50,000 individual servings - for distribution to hungry children and families in our community. Meals will be distributed to kids through Missoula Food Bank's EmPower Pack weekend nutrition program, providing healthy meals for students who experience chronic hunger while away from school. Each of the meals serves a family of 6, allowing the entire family to enjoy a meal together, or feeding a child for the entirety of an extended school break. 

United Way is able to purchase all the supplies needed for the event at a discount, allowing for the maximum community impact. The meals packaged at this event will be distributed throughout the year to local children and families in need.

These sponsors are making this event possible. Thank you!
