Preston Hollow Presbyterian Church set a tall order for itself. It’s planning on packing 120,000 meals for the North Texas Food Bank in just one day on Sunday, Aug. 21.

It’s a lofty goal, and one they need help reaching. They expect it’ll take around 600 volunteers to make the day a success, and are hoping neighbors will lend a helping hand.

“So if you want to bring a friend, your softball team or your civic club we would be happy to have you join us in this important work,” says Dana Moffatt, the communications director for the church.

There will be two volunteer time slots on Aug. 21, at 8:15 a.m. and 11:15 a.m. Volunteers are asked to register here so the church can ensure it has enough hands on deck.

The church has partnered with Meals of Hope on this effort, which provides nutritious offerings for food banks all over the country. North Texas Food Bank provided 63.4 million meals to food insecure people last year, with a goal of growing that number to 92 million meals by 2025.
