Did you know that 720 million people including 150 million children in the world do not get enough food to lead a healthy life? Malnutrition is the single largest contributor to disease in the world. School feeding programs can help prevent hunger, increase school enrollment, reduce absenteeism, and improve learning outcomes.
We have the opportunity to make a positive impact in the world by packaging 10,000 meals on May 1st, partnering with Rise Against Hunger, a non-profit organization that is committed to ending world hunger. In 1998, Ray Buchanan — a United Methodist minister — founded Stop Hunger Now; rebranded to Rise Against Hunger (RAH) in 2017. 2.8+ million lives impacted in 2020; and more than 543+ million total meals have been packaged to benefit 78 countries.
Sign up below or in the Crossroads to participate in this fun church event. There are opportunities to help with unloading the supplies and setup (1-3PM), to pack meals (3-5PM) and to pack up the supplies and clean-up (5-6PM). Ages 5 and up are welcome.
