Rise Against Hunger Food Packing Event
Saturday, February 29, 2020
Stanton Hall 9:30 a.m. – Noon
Rise Against Hunger is an organization driven by the vision of a world without hunger. Its mission is to end world hunger by providing food and life-saving aid to the world’s most vulnerable people and creating a global commitment to mobilize resources to tackle the issue. Rise Against Hunger works to meet immediate nutritional needs today and to empower the ability to build the strong, resilient communities of tomorrow by promoting sustainable solutions to hunger. The food packing events are part of its short-term strategy to address the immediate needs. Hunger is a barrier to education, steady employment, health and economic growth. As president Rod Brooks says “Our evolving mission includes new pathways to end hunger by getting nutrition to those in need and empowering communities on ways to become self-sufficient and alleviate poverty.” What a privilege for FPC to part of the solution.
Join us on February 29th as we will gather 75 members of our church to pack 12,096 meals for delivery to hungry children in the developing world. We have previously packed approximately 61,000 meals under this program during prior events. The morning is fast paced and exciting as we work together as a great inter-generational team to complete the packing of the meals.
