Masons of Dallas Serving Dallas - Feed the Funnel 2023
Tuesday, February 28, 2023, Freemasons from all over Dallas came together with family and friends at the Dallas Scottish Rite Cathedral to pack meals for the homeless community in Dallas. Partnering with The Pack Shack, a nonprofit whose mission is to supply provisions and opportunities for those in need. The Masons of Dallas set a goal to pack 60,000 meals in an hour and a half. With the help of more than 200 volunteers, including Masons from 26 different Lodges, their friends, and families, we were able to pack 61,264 meals!
Upon arrival at the Cathedral, volunteers were treated to a meal prepared by members of Tannehill Masonic Lodge. After dinner, everyone filed into the Crystal Ballroom where they donned hair nets and gloves and were assigned to a station. Everyone gathered around large, yellow funnels and waited for the gong signaling them to start. The next 90 minutes involved a well-orchestrated, energy filled assembly line involving upbeat music and cheers as the team reached milestones of 5,000, 10,000, 30,000, 50,000 and finally
