Project MobilePack

Operation Christmas Child Graphics Package 2021 Email Banner

Be part of our largest church-wide serve event of the year!

Register to pack meals or donate to Project MobilePack and help us form an assembly line against hunger!

Over two days, hundreds of volunteers will work in shifts to hand-pack rice, soy, dried vegetables, and a nutritionally-complete blend of vitamins and minerals into bags which are then sealed, boxed, placed on pallets, and shipped to our incredible partners working hard to reach the neediest children around the world.

Bring your family, friends, neighbors, Life Group, small group, and co-workers to experience this one-of-a-kind serve opportunity!

Help us reach our 2024 goal of packing 300,000 meals and raising $89,500 to cover all expenses!

Sign up to pack

April 19-20, 2024

We need at least 1,500 volunteers in order to reach our goal of packing 300,000 meals and make the event a success! Sign up to serve for a shift at our Bee Cave or Southwest campus.

Sensory-Friendly Shift

Join us for the 9am Saturday shift at our Bee Cave Campus for a sensory-friendly packing experience. All abilities are welcome to join us for a session with quiet music, slower pace, and accommodations to meet all abilities.

Frequently Asked Questions

The minimum age to volunteer is 5 years old. For safety reasons, children under the age of 5 are not allowed to participate in packing sessions.

We will offer child care at both campuses for 11:30am shift on Saturday, April 20, for kids ages 4 and under. Sign up here.

Please plan to arrive 10-15 minutes prior to your packing session to check-in. Your orientation and packing instructions will take place during your scheduled shift.

All volunteers, both returning and new, must attend orientation to ensure that proper packing procedures are followed.

We highly recommend all volunteers wear closed-toed shoes. Due to FDA requirements, NO jewelry may be worn in the packing room.

Yes! We reserve one of our most important tasks for sit-down volunteers. Volunteers can sit while labeling bags—this is a vital step to the packing process. This task entails putting our FMSC label on each bag before it is filled with food.

FMSC advises volunteers with food allergies to exercise caution when determining whether or not to participate in food packing. We are able to provide a complete list of ingredients in FMSC's food products, but we cannot guarantee the environments of our ingredients' manufacturing.

Volunteers with extreme food allergies or allergies to any of the listed ingredients are advised not to pack.

  • Clark Richardson

    Clark Richardson

    Clark is a Waco native and a Dallas Baptist University graduate. His non-traditional college and career track within the landscape industry and fundraising/development unknowingly prepared him for such a time as this. Over a number of trips to Uganda, God opened his eyes to how he could use his gifts and talents both locally and globally for the Kingdom. That led him to put his “yes” on the table in 2016, and the rest is history. He married up when landing his beautiful wife, Natalie, in 2010, and they have three children, Graham, Isla, and Cora. He is a jack of all trades and master of none. He enjoys being a dad of three, and when there is time, hunting, sports, dabbling with smoking meat, and campfires.
