820 MILLION PEOPLE

across the world don't receive enough nutrition to lead an active healthy life

Join the Summit YMCA in partnership with the Central Presbyterian Church and the Summit Area Lions Club to package meals that will serve 25,000 individuals in the United states and abroad. It is a fun afternoon suitable for all (over the age of 6 with accompanying adult). You can stand or sit while assembling the food packets, and does not require any heavy lifting, etc.  

 

 

Rise Against Hunger meal packaging volunteers produce millions of nutritious meals annually that are then distributed to partners in countries around the world. Those partners are best able to address the causes and effects of hunger based on their local presence and expertise. Through Rise Against Hunger's thorough monitoring and evaluation process, they ensure the meals distributed by those partners are used as a tool to change lives by promoting education, improving students’ health and nutrition, addressing gender inequalities, stimulating economic growth and fighting child labor.
