For more than 17 years, Rise Against Hunger, formally Stop Hunger Now, has been creating a movement to end hunger. More than 180,000,000 meals have been packaged and distributed, along with other aid, to 65 countries, impacting millions of lives. The organization is driven by a mission to end hunger in our lifetime by providing food and life-changing aid to the world’s most vulnerable and by creating a global commitment to mobilize the necessary resources.
The Stop Hunger Now meal packaging program was created to give dedicated individuals the opportunity to participate in a hands-on international hunger relief program and to become educated, engaged advocates for the world’s poor and hungry. In 2014, Stop Hunger Now and its global affiliates packaged 50.6 million meals.
Euless First has now packed some 45,000 meals to help the world’s poor and hungry. Meal packing events are fun for all ages. Kids are runners, those who need to sit can seal bags of food. The list goes on and on. What a wonderful way to spend a Sunday morning making a difference in the world. Look out for our next meal packing event coming soon.
Here are a couple of pictures of us packing 10,267 meals in less time than anticipated. Thanks again your help!
