Volunteer to Rise Against Hunger
March 16 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm
A HANDS-ON IMPACT ON WORLD HUNGER
Rise Against Hunger’s meal packaging program is a volunteer-based initiative that coordinates the assembly-line packaging of highly nutritious dehydrated meals comprised of rice, soy, vegetables and 23 essential vitamins and minerals. The program was created to give dedicated individuals and organizations — from businesses to civic clubs — the opportunity to participate in a hands-on international hunger relief program and to become educated, engaged advocates for those facing hunger. The events also give volunteers hands-on experience in leadership development, team building, relationship building, creative problem solving and goal setting and achievement.
Since the inception of the meal packaging program in December 2005, these meals have been used primarily to support school feeding programs in developing countries. Hunger is the common thread among the world’s most challenging issues. Targeting hunger — specifically by supporting school feeding programs — leverages support to other causes including poverty, disease, education and the welfare of women and children.
We will package 10,000 meals for the hungry. We need at least 50 volunteers to make this happen! Sign up today!
