Rise Against Hunger

Please join us for a Rise Against Hunger meal packaging event on Saturday, September 24 in the Fellowship Hall.

Rise Against Hunger is an international nonprofit organization with a 3/4 star rating on Charity Navigator. Meals, which look like simple bags of rice and soy, but are balanced and nutritious, will be assembled and packed for shipment to developing nations in the world where hunger is a real issue. Almost half of all childhood deaths occur in children with malnutrition.

Many volunteers, who are the heart of the mission, will be needed for the assembly line and packing boxes on the 24th. Click here to choose your shift.

The congregation is encouraged to contribute both time and money to this effort; raising $5,000 will enable us to package 10,000 meals. Creative Fellowship is putting up $2,500 and is looking to raise an additional $2,500 for this event. Donations can be put in the offering plate using a check payable to St. John’s with “Rise Against Hunger” written on the memo line or made online through CCB. Please note when giving online to designate "Rise Against Hunger” in the drop-down menu.
