Project 216 5K

Saturday September 19th, 2020

Fort Wayne, IN

Official Website


This is the 6th Annual Project 216 5K.  The 5K proceeds and direct sponsorship pay for the raw ingredients to pack the Nutri-Plenty® meal. Our race provides a range of 10,000 to 15,000 meals for starving children in Haiti, Philippines, and in our very own back yard.  The next person to open these boxes will be those who are desperately in need of these meals.  

Have you ever felt overwhelmed by the many problems that exist in this world? Have you wanted to just DO SOMETHING but didn’t know where to start? Project 216 exists for just that reason. We are here to help you and your group make a real difference in the fight against world hunger. Our Packing Event program allows you to take ownership of a hunger project and make it your own. We will come alongside you every step of the way with the tools you need to make it happen. What does a packing event look like for your group? Click here to learn more. 

The name Project 216 has three different meanings, all of which encompass what we do.  The first and most basic is that every Project 216 box that gets shipped out contains 216 meals. The second meaning revolves around our volunteers, without whom we absolutely could not exist! At every 2 hour packing event, each volunteer will average about 216 meals. This means that every single person who comes to an event is responsible for about 216 meals for the hungry. Because of each volunteer, whether they are 5 or 95, 216 people will receive a meal designed to help them thrive. And finally, as a Christian organization, we serve because Jesus came to serve. James 2:16 says, If one of you says to those in need, “Go in peace, keep warm and well fed” but does nothing about their physical needs, what good is it? We want to be an organization that not only sees the need, but does something about it, and empowers you to do something about it too!
