Rise Against Hunger
Rise Against Hunger

Meal Packing Event at SOS Fellowship Center (Bldg F)
Saturday, February 3 
9a - 12 noon

Rise Against Hunger partners with nonprofits around the world to provide food and other life-saving aid to those in need. These partners support a variety of development programs that work with members of the community to meet their basic needs and create long-term, sustainable change. Partners are selected after undergoing a comprehensive evaluation which addresses not only the effectiveness and sustainability of the organization’s programs, but also their ability to import, store and distribute meals, as well as provide  regular reporting on their use and the impact of their programs. Rise Against Hunger staff members visit partner sites throughout the year to monitor the use of the aid that was provided and look for other ways that Rise Against Hunger can support their efforts.

Come join us for a fun and meaningful 3 hours packing meals for our brothers and sisters who lack basic nutrition.  Participants age 6 and up are invited. This event is two-fold; first it is a fundraising event and our goal of 20,000 meals will cost $5,800 or $.29 per meal.  Our second goal is to have 100 members come and pack the food on Saturday, February 3rd at 9 a.m. The more money we raise the more meals we can pack. This is a great opportunity to invite friends in the community to come and join us and see our congregation at work.

 
What a great way to live into the gospel of Jesus’ words in Matthew 25:37-40, which begins with: “Lord, when was it that we saw you hungry and gave you food..."
