Our 2019 Rise Against Hunger Meal Packing Event will be held on Monday, January 21st beginning at 9 am. Many volunteers are needed as we will be packing more than 28,000 meals!
About Rise Against Hunger
Rise Against Hunger (formerly Stop Hunger Now) is an international hunger relief organization that coordinates the food distribution and other life-saving aid around the world.
Rise Against Hunger meals pack a big punch. Every dehydrated rice/soy meal is fortified with 21 essential vitamins and nutrients.
Research has shown that one in three people in developing countries are adversely affected by vitamin and mineral deficiencies. Addressing the problem of hunger is the single point where we can leverage relief for all humanitarian issues.
We packed 35,856 meals for Rise Against Hunger!
The 2018 Stop Hunger Now meal packaging project was a huge success! Thank you to the many church and community volunteers who came out on the Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service to package dehydrated, high protein, and highly nutritious meals that are used in crisis situations, school feeding programs, and orphanages in developing countries around the world.
A huge thank you to everyone who donated and helped raise funds needed to pay for the meals, and to the Church and Society Team for organizing the fundraising and meal packaging event. It is an immensely fun, hands-on and rewarding experience for anyone of any age.
