Rise Against Hunger is a fun and engaging service project with opportunities for all to participate. Come to the Fellowship Hall immediately following the 10:45 am worship service. We will plan on starting lunch at 12:00 pm and begin packaging at about 12:30 pm. We hope you can make it!
For Samarah Joacchim, a 7th-grader in Haiti, school means life and hope for a future. But not just because of the education she will get there. For Samarah and millions of children around the world, attending school also means she will eat that day.
“Without food I would be starving and my grades would be lower. Most of us rely on the food served at school to survive; this is the only meal we get for the day. I hope the feeding program will continue.”
More than 40 percent of Rise Against Hunger’s meals are distributed to school feeding programs around the world. Those meals encourage school attendance and help put these children and their families on a path out of poverty.
