Rise Against Hunger

Outreach Event 10/29

What you need to know:

 

Saint Stephen’s Parish Hall on Sunday 10/29 in lieu of the regularly scheduled 9:00 & 11:15 services, there will be an abbreviated service with communion in between the shifts, at 10:30.

 

Sponsors: SSE Outreach Committee, ECW, Holy Apostles, St. Catherine’s, St. Thomas

 

This is a fast paced and fun filled event where we race against the clock to reach our goal of packaging over 30,000 meals in just a few hours.  In a world of instant gratification, this will be at the top of your list! Your involvement will be directly contributing to packaging nearly 200 meals during a single shift! Think about that… you will have nourished a child’s hunger 200 times in under 2 hours! Why haven’t you signed up already???

 

Dress: Comfortable, with a clean hat. We will provide hair nets during check in for the event if you need.

 

All ages are welcome.  The nursery will be open and available for your use if needed. There will be roughly 100 people moving quickly around the parish hall and we don’t want to have any accidents. Use your best judgement.

 

Jobs: Food delivery/refill, assembly lines to make meals, runners, bag sealers, packaging, clean up

 

About Rise Against Hunger:

 

Rise Against Hunger, formerly Stop Hunger Now, is driven by the vision of a world without hunger. Their mission is to end hunger in our lifetime by providing food and lifechanging aid to the world’s most vulnerable and by creating a global commitment to mobilize the necessary resources.

 

In addition to meal packaging, Rise Against Hunger continues to find new ways to eradicate hunger. Over the last couple of years they have started new programs to improve emergency response and farming initiatives to improve the lives of those in need.

 

2016 Statistics:

64 Million meals were delivered to 43 countries around the world

Over 1 Million people were served the very meals we are packaging at our event

72% of the beneficiaries were youth

 

Over 40% of the meals are distributed in schools and 25% to medical facilities
