Rise Against Hunger is an international hunger relief organization that coordinates food distribution and other life-saving aid around the world, with the goal of ending hunger worldwide by 2030. 

Our church participates annually toward this effort by hosting a Rise Against Hunger Meal Packing Event. Fundraising takes place throughout the year to cover the cost of the food, on the Martin Luther King Day of Service we host many volunteers to pack thousands of dehydrated, high protein, and highly nutritious meals to be distributed to countries in need around the world. They are used in crisis situations, school feeding programs, and orphanages in developing countries around the world. The meal packing events are fun, rewarding events with jobs for volunteers of all ages and abilities.

 

On Monday, January 20 , we packed more than 59,000 meals for Rise Against Hunger! The meals we packed have shipped and will be used by Lift Up the Vulnerable which is helping
people in South Sudan.

 

Help is needed as we prepare our fund-raising efforts for 2021. Talk to Reverend Rounsley to be part of the RAH planning team!
