Rise Against Hunger: Making a Difference One Meal at a Time

Assemble a meal. Save a family.

Roast beef, baked ham, mashed potatoes, sugar cookies, and cake are just some of the delicious food that we look forward to during Christmas. Unfortunately, not everyone gets to eat these dishes during the holiday season. As a matter of fact, sadly, not everyone gets to eat every day. According to Action Against Hunger, “nearly one in ten people around the world go to bed hungry each night.” This is what Rise Against Hunger, an organization whose vision is “a world without hunger,” is trying to address. On December 14, they’ll be having a meal packing event at New Jersey. Be one with the community as you pack nutritious meals to feed hungry families from different locations this holiday season.

Details: Join the Rise Against Hunger team for a community event in Union, New Jersey. This meal packaging event will feature our start-to-finish meal assembly experience — from pouring nutritious ingredients at funnel stations, to carefully weighing and sealing each meal bag, to boxing completed meals to be distributed to children and families facing hunger worldwide. We’re excited for you to join us!

Date: December 14, 2024

Time: 10 a.m. – 2:30 p.m.

Location: 60 Milltown Rd, Union, NJ 07083

While long-term food security projects take root, communities facing hunger need to meet their basic needs today. We will come together to package as many as 20,088 meals to help serve this need. It starts with a meal, and it starts with you!

Anthropologist and writer Margaret Mead once said, “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed citizens can change the world: indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.” Gather your family and friends and make this Christmas a warm and memorable one for people who need help the most.
