Yes, it’s true, Family Legacy has partnered up with Google to host a food packing event that will enable a quarter-million meals to be prepared and shipped to Zambia! The super secretive Google will open their doors to the public on March 8, 2017, to 700 volunteers to help get the job done. Silicon Beat, a tech blog in Silicon Valley, published an article to get the word out to companies in the area – see it here.
Googlers, students from Stanford University, employees from Apple, and volunteers from the area will gather to help pack white rice, pink Himalayan salt, and dehydrated vegetables. These ingredients will be used to make the healthy and very filling red lentil Jambalaya that the orphans at Chaisa Legacy Academy will be eating all year long.
Members of the Family Legacy staff will be heading out to Google Headquarters in Mountain View, CA to help facilitate the event and bring awareness to Family Legacy and its mission. The event will take place at “Google’s West Campus 2 in Mountain View, from 11 a.m. to 8:30 p.m, in the Grand Teton Conference Room.”
It is a tremendous task at hand, but with so many people working together, the lives of thousands of children will be transformed!
Do any of you know Googlers or friends in the Mountain View area? If so, forward this post over to them, encourage them to sign up for a food-packing shift, and get involved!
