November Lunch & Learn

Rise Against Hunger

The Senior Adult Ministry Team sponsored an “Intergenerational 10,152 Meals Packaging” event on Saturday, August 19 from 10:00 – Noon.

Rise Against Hunger is an International hunger relief organization that distributes food and life-changing aid to the world’s most vulnerable, mobilizing the necessary resources to end hunger by 2030. 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 in three ways.

1. It is ensured the meals distributed by those partners are used as a tool to change lives by promoting education, improving people’s health and nutrition, addressing gender inequalities, stimulating economic growth and fighting child labor.

2. Another core focus of Rise Against Hunger is responding to crises–both natural and man-made. From droughts to floods, in conflict zones and transitioning political situations, food is often the most immediate need. When everyday access to food, wages, and market systems are destroyed in the wake of emergencies, Rise Against Hunger works through a network of in-country partners to address those needs. The organization strives to ensure aid is efficiently and effectively deployed to and received by communities when it is needed most.

Eradicating hunger centers around grassroots community empowerment. Rise Against Hunger strengthens agricultural production and incomes through programs promoting improved agricultural methods, business skills, and market access. With training and access to quality seeds and fertilizers, farmers can increase production and harvest a variety of nutritious crops. By supporting the establishment of fish and livestock production, they also provide pathways to diversifying diets and improving nutritional outcomes.

People of all ages (children, youth & adults) participated in this event. There were jobs for those who are unable to stand for a two-hour period.  We do not want anyone to go hungry just because they live in a remote place and are deprived of the basic necessities of life. Please call or text Moses Kumar at 615-347-5122 or email him at feliciakumar22@gmail.com for more information. Lunch was served and childcare was provided. Thank you for assisting in this life-saving event!
