Rise Against Hunger
RISE AGAINST HUNGER (RAH) is driven by the vision of a world without hunger. Driving RAH’s work is the recognition that ending hunger is more than just feeding people, which led RAH to focus its feeding programs in areas where they can have a real impact and expand its hunger-fighting programs beyond meal packaging and distribution. RAH is based in Raleigh, NC and operates meal packaging programs in cities across the US and South Africa, Malaysia, India, Italy, and the Philippines. Typically, given the number of volunteers, about 10,000 meals are packaged. Each meal costs about thirty cents. So packaging event hosts must fund a minimum of $3,000 to schedule a 10,000 meal event.
“Since our first packing event in 2015 when we packed 10,000 meals, we raised the bar and packed over 20,000 meals in 2017. Also in 2017, we were honored to work alongside members of Davie Street Presbyterian Church. God is truly working among us, inspiring and energizing the church through our families, youth, and individual church members."”
