Rise Against Hunger
Rise Against Hunger (previously known as Stop Hunger Now) is an organization, which gets food and life-saving aid to the world’s most vulnerable people, and works to end global hunger in our lifetime. Established in 1998, Rise Against Hunger has provided over 374 million meals in 74 countries. Rise Against Hunger is based in Raleigh, N.C., and operates throughout the U.S. and through affiliates in developing countries. Visit www.churchoftheservant.com/hunger or www.riseagainsthunger.org for more information.
Every day 30,000 people die of starvation. That is 1,250 people per hour, one person every 3 seconds. In 2010 Church Of The Servant partnered with Rise Against Hunger in the mission of ending global hunger! Members and friends of Servant have packaged over 1,162,792 meals since then.
On Sunday, February 25, 2018, the entire church will work together over a 5-hour span of time to package 151,000 meals, which will be shipped all over the world to help feed hungry children. It is a truly exciting and life-saving event.
Rise Against Hunger has become a part of who we are at Church of the Servant. For many of us, it is the most favorite Sunday of the year. It is impacting and shaping our world, our church and our families in ways we could not have foreseen.
Donations are always accepted. Our meal goal is to package 151,000 meals. Each meal costs $0.29, so we hope to raise $43,790 to cover the cost of this year’s event.
Tell your family and friends about Rise Against Hunger. Then, be a part of impacting the world through giving and participating in Rise Against Hunger on Sunday, February 25, 2018.
