Rise Against Hunger
Working together to End World Hunger
Plan to join us on Saturday, February 3, 2018 at 9:00am in the church dining hall for a wonderful family mission opportunity. Mallard Creek will be hosting its annual Rise Against Hunger (f/k/a Stop Hunger Now) packaging event and the session is donating $5,800.00, which will provide 20,000 meals to third world countries. That’s right, 29 cents a meal! Although it sounds daunting, you’ll be amazed at how these meals are put together and we’ll be done in just a couple of hours. Unlike some other mission events, this is a great family activity; children of all ages can help, even those with limited mobility.
Rise Against Hunger has been fulfilling its commitment to end hunger across the globe for 20 years. Established in 1998, Rise Against Hunger coordinates the distribution of food and other life-saving aid to crisis-burdened areas around the world. This is accomplished through popular community-supported meal packaging programs such as our upcoming event.
Rise Against Hunger distributes its meals through feeding programs operated by partner organizations in developing countries which promote education, encourage children to attend school, improve the health and nutrition of students, address gender inequalities, spur economic growth, combat child labor, and create a platform for tackling global issues. In addition to supporting school feeding programs, Rise Against Hunger also provides meals in response to crisis relief.
Volunteers have packaged more than 225 million meals distributed to 74 countries. Learn more about the organization by visiting their website: www.riseagainsthunger.org.
Bring the entire family on February 3 and witness how we can make a difference in other parts of the world.
