Rise

Working Together to End World Hunger!

Around the world, more than 868 million people lack adequate food, and more than 25,000 die each day from hunger-related illnesses.

Rise Against Hunger meal-packaging events are volunteer-based programs that compile highly nutritious dehydrated meals of rice, soy, vegetables, flavoring, and 21 essential vitamins and minerals. Stop Hunger Now provides millions of nutritious meals and other life-saving aid to children and families all over the world. Rise against Hunger collaborates with existing development efforts in vulnerable communities to provide meals to places such as schools, orphanages, nurseries and medical clinics. Each meal costs just 29 cents and a group of 100 volunteers can package 20,000 meals in just two hours. That’s where you come in...

Our 2019 Goal at Kinderhook Reformed Church is 30,000 meals!

That means 2 things – we need to raise $8,700 and at least 120 volunteers. Our Packing event will be held Saturday, September 7th, 2019. We need unloaders & food packers of all ages to complete this mission.

You and your Church, friends and family can help raise funds and/or participate on the packing day! Please join us as we gather together with Rise Against Hunger to be the hands and feet of Christ in this mission to feed the hungry!

For more information or to sign up to volunteer please contact the church at 518-758-6401 or krc@fairpoint.net!

Blessings to you as you consider joining us!
