University United Food Friday

University United Food Friday


The University of Montana and United Way of Missoula County are excited to host the second 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 Friday, Sept. 20, 2019, over 500 volunteers will package 100,000 nonperishable, individual meal servings for distribution to hungry children and families in our community. Each meal package serves a family of six, allowing the entire family to enjoy a meal together, or feeding a child for the entirety of an extended school break.

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. 

Sign up now to volunteer from 12:30 to 2:30 p.m. or from 2 to 5 p.m.  Friday, Sept. 20, in the UC Ballroom. Volunteer shifts are first come first serve, so sign up early!
