Feed the Hunger Spring 2018 Pack-a-thon
What is a Pack-a-thon?
Feed the Hunger Pack-a-thon is a food packing event in which RockPointe Church helps produce thousands of nutritious meals that will be distributed through Feed the Hunger partners to children and families in need, both in America and internationally.
Did you know?
• $102.20 feeds a child for an entire school year • Fall 2017 we packed our 3,000,000th meal • $42,000 is needed to cover our Pack-a-thon expenses • RPC also partners with Feed the Hunger through our support of The Life Saver Orphanage in Haiti
How Else Can You Help?
RockPointe Church is responsible for funding our events. All the food packed and delivered is paid for by us… that’s you and other generous and mission-minded folks like you. If you would like to do more in addition to helping pack meals, donate here.
our friends in Beaumont, Texas received 31,104 of the meals previously packed at RockPointe Church. It was a long and difficult journey but thanks to your prayers it arrived safely. If you wish to donate to help those in Texas, visit Hurricane Harvey Relief and see all the ways you can help! Feed the Hunger was able to distribute an additional 17,280 meals packed at RPC to the Caribbean. Turks and Caicos were already in need of food on the island before Hurricane Maria. Missionary Flights International will continue to distribute Feed the Hunger meals to this area that is so in need. Please keep our Caribbean friends in your prayers! We are so grateful! It is through your donations and generosity to RockPointe Church and Feed the Hunger that we are able to truly care for so many around the world.
Through the Feed the Hunger food-packing events, RockPointe Church has provided more than one million meals for children around the world. These meals are delivered directly to the children – sometimes even by our own church members. Along with the meal, these children receive the love of Christ through volunteers and the organizations caring for them.
This year our Family Mission Trip to Lynch, KY was able to do just that. The team, comprised of 10 families, was able to unpack the meals packed by our very own church at a previous Packathon, cook the meals and then distribute them to families in need in the area.
Together, let’s feed some hungry children and show them the love of Christ! You don’t have to travel far to be a part of serving others in need. We would love for you to join us!

RockPointe Church provides additional support to Feed the Hunger through their ministry initiative, Life Saver Orphanage Home in Haiti.
Life Saver Orphanage Home started after the earthquake of 2010. Pastor Paul Williams and his wife began walking the streets after the earthquake and discovered many little children that had lost their parents. The children were physically hurt with broken arms, cuts and bruises and they were mentally confused, saddened and in shock.
Feed the Hunger was directed to them soon after the earthquake and began supporting them providing them with food, clothes and beds. At first the children and Paul’s family lived under a large tarp; at that time no one wanted to stay in a building due to the instability of all the buildings following the earthquake. Months later they moved into a home that was partially occupied by a small school. Today they live in a beautiful clean home.
The children range in age from 3 – 17. What is unique about these children (26) and Paul’s family is that they are singers and musicians. Paul has trained all of his children to play instruments and to sing and they do it very well.
Last year a woman from Georgia that has her own ministry, visited the children’s home and fell in love with them. She has greatly invested into the home financially and also in their singing. Last year she and her team spent many hours teaching the children English, Christian songs and etiquette. She brought them over to the states and the choir traveled to numerous states singing in churches and other concerts raising money for the home. The children spent over 3 months there.
Feed the Hunger provides Life Saver Orphanage with boxed food plus RockPointe’s monthly gift. Read the most current ministry update.
