2023 Harvard Interfaith Meal-Packaging Service Project

It’s that time of the year where we join forces with the Harvard Chaplains and End Hunger New England (part of The Outreach Program) to work side by side with religious and non-religious communities to pack thousands of meal boxes for the Interfaith Meal-Packaging Service Project! This is a campus and community service event for all family members, so to families with younger children, this is a great way to show your kids how to give back to your community.

This year, we will be packing 35,000 nutritious meals total for local organizations who help Massachusetts households who struggle to provide food for their families. Our fundraising goal is $12,250 (35 cents per meal) to make this event a success. We need your help hitting this goal! Thank you for your generosity — and we look forward to seeing you there!


  • Date: Sunday, December 3, 2023
  • Time: 11:00 am–7:00 pm
  • Location: 59 Shepard Street, Cambridge, MA 02138 (Student Organization Center at Hilles at Harvard)
    It is a Sunday so street parking is free, and Harvard Square is the closest T stop.
