RISE AGAINST HUNGER

Rise Against Hunger (formerly called Stop Hunger Now) is an international hunger relief agency whose vision is to end world hunger. At meal packing events, volunteers assemble rice, soy, dehydrated vegetables, and a flavoring mix that includes 21 essential vitamins and minerals into small packets. Rise Against Hunger works with international partners to ship and distribute the sealed bags in-country through transformational development programs such as school feeding programs, vocational training programs, early childhood development programs, orphanages, and medical clinics. To learn more about Rise Against Hunger, click here to visit their website. Each year, St. Andrew's helps to fight world hunger by hosting a Rise Against Hunger meal packaging event.

Thank you to all who helped package 31,536 meals at our 2017 event.

Our eight year total is now 235,278 meals packaged!

Save the date of April 14, 2018 for our next meal packaging event.
