With an Outreach/WaterBrick food packaging event, volunteers team up for one-day to produce dried, non-perishable meals that are packaged for delivery in WaterBrick containers. These food packaging events give a community a way to encourage involvement in humanitarian aide efforts by combating hunger and stockpiling for natural disasters at home and abroad. As of Sepember 2012, Outreach has packaged over 210 million meals since its inception in 2004 for people in need in the U.S. and around the world. The Outreach Program is a 4-star charity in Charity Navigator. For more information, click here.

WaterBrick has partnered with Love A Child, a non-profit Christian Humanitarian Organization, that has been helping in Haiti since 1991. While their relationship will certainly make it easier to pass through the red tape of importing goods, the bigger benefit is that they are a trusted Haiti distribution source to get our donated goods to those in need. Love a Child distributed WaterBrick water and food storage containers into their new Miracle Village in the town of Fond Parisien outside of Port-Au-Prince. Love A Child is a 4-star charity in Charity Navigator. For more information, click here.
