Rise Against Hunger

Rise Against Hunger  is a faith-based meal packaging program that uses volunteers to package high-protein, dehydrated meals (fortified rice/soy meal) that are used in crisis situations, school lunch programs, and orphanages around the world. Each package contains six meals and costs twenty-five cents per package to cover the cost of the raw materials. When the packages are received by their designated recipients, they are prepared by simply mixing with boiling water, which both ensures the water's purity, and creates a hot meal.

Ages 5 and up can participate in packaging meals and it will only take a few hours of your time. Individuals, as well as groups, such as Sunday School classes, families and clubs, are urged to participate. You must register to participate. The number of packing positions is determined by the number of registrants.
 

We will be packing meals on Wednesday, April 12. We will begin the evening with a special meal from 5pm – 6pm in the New Life Center, and then set to work immediately following.  There will be no Wednesday Evening Fellowship that evening, so even though this is dinner on a Wednesday evening, permanent reservations for WEF will not be honored. If you are packaging and want to eat dinner at the event, you must make reservations for the mealChildcare will be available during the packing event.

 

  
The cost of all meals is $5.00 per person and any monies received by the kitchen that are in excess of the cost of preparing the meals, will go to the Rise Against Hunger project.
 
If you have questions or need more information, contact Sherri Dees, Outreach Committee chair, at ocskid@hotmail.com or 910-308-5138
 
Deadline to sign up is Monday, April 10!
