United Way of Missoula County and the University of Montana are hosting the 2nd Annual University United Food Friday, a one-of-a-kind community volunteer event. This great team-building event is an opportunity to help feed thousands of our hungry neighbors.
On the UM campus during University United Food Friday, over 500 volunteers will package 100,000 non-perishable, individual meal 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 meal package 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.
University United Food Friday is made possible with the support of lead sponsor Wells Fargo, and also with Providence St. Patrick Health Services, Republic Services and in partnership with the University of Montana.
