For approximately 8,000 West Michigan children, Sack Suppers mean school lunch doesn’t have to be the last meal of the day. No matter the volunteer opportunity, we make changing the world easy, fun and highly rewarding experience for all. One of the items kids love the most is popcorn!
This is a great project for groups! The repacked popcorn is served as a component of the Sack Suppers.
Please Note: All popcorn MUST be assembled in a facility licensed for food preparation. Hair and beard nets must be worn for this project. Please contact us with any questions.
Please note, one large bag of popcorn should fill about 120 sandwich bags. You can make as many bags as you’d like! Kids’ Food Basket does not supply the popcorn. We recommend movie theater to ensure quantity accuracy according to the supply list below. Each bag is approximately 80 ounces of popcorn. Once complete you can drop off to Kids’ Food Basket between 9-11 AM and 2-5 PM.
• Large bags of popcorn
• Zipper lock sandwich bags
• Food service gloves
• 8-10 oz. plastic cups
• Plastic party tubs or similar size boxes lined with clear plastic can liners
- Make sure everyone washes their hands and puts on a pair of gloves. Pull back any long hair into a ponytail.
- Pour large bags of popcorn into plastic tubs.
- Fill 8-10 oz. plastic cup to the top by dipping into the tub of popcorn.
- Pour this in to one zipper lock sandwich bag. Working in teams of two, one person can scoop and another can hold and close the bag.
- Fill the zipper lock sandwich bag 3/4 of the way full. Then squeeze out the air and make sure the bags are sealed tightly.
- Repeat until all the popcorn is gone.
Celebration Cinema sells popcorn to anyone leading a project for Kids’ Food Basket for $12.50 per bag if you buy two. Please note, to provide one weeks notice before a project.
