Food Bank planning 24-hour ‘Pack the House” event


Louise Warren

Join Treasure Coast Food Bank for Pack The House, a 24-hour sorting and packing event to help fight hunger. From noon on Friday, Sept. 8 until noon on Saturday, Sept. 9, hundreds of volunteers will help sort and pack enough food for more than 200,000 meals at Treasure Coast Food Bank’s Fort Pierce headquarters, located at 401 Angle Road in Fort Pierce.

During the event, volunteers enjoy music, karaoke, midnight Zumba, and great food donated by popular area restaurants. Pack the House is part of Hunger Action Month, when the nation’s food banks encourage everyone to help end hunger. Nearly 100,000 individuals on the Treasure Coast struggle with hunger each week.

Gather friends, family and co-workers and help make a difference – because nothing runs on empty. Sign up to volunteer during one of the 3-hour shifts at Sponsor opportunities also are available. To learn more, visit or email
