Rise Against Hunger is an international aid program that has the goal of eradicating hunger by the year 2030. FPC partners with Rise Against Hunger by holding a Food Packaging Event each September. At this event, we bag 12,000 prepared meals that will then be shipped to a place in the world where it is needed. The meals we bagged in 2019 were shipped to Somalia to be distributed by ARAHA (American Relief Agency for the Horn of Africa).
How to participate:
Give. We must raise $3400 to hold the Meal Packaging Event.
Volunteer. On the day of the Meal Packaging Event, 50 volunteers (of all ages) are needed to gather in the Fellowship Hall at 9:00 a.m. to put on hairnets and bag, weigh, seal, and box food.
Our next Food Packaging Event will be September 19, 2020.
