Rise Against Hunger

Outreach Opportunity for Willistown United Methodist Church Members

 

Advent Lutheran is holding a “Rise Against Hunger” Event at Advent, February 8, 2020.   Main event is 1 PM to 3 PM.   Willistown will be participating both financially and with volunteers to help package meals. The more the merrier! If we send more helpers, Advent can make more meals than they have already contracted for and will pay for.  Currently, Advent is doing 10,000 meals at a cost of about .32 per meal.

Rise Against Hunger

OUR MISSION

Rise Against Hunger is driven by the vision of a world without hunger. Our mission is to end hunger in our lifetime by providing food and life-changing aid to the world’s most vulnerable and creating a global commitment to mobilize the necessary resources.

 

OUR HISTORY

In 1998, envisioning a world without hunger, Ray Buchanan — a United Methodist minister — founded Stop Hunger Now. In 2017, Stop Hunger Now rebranded to become Rise Against Hunger. After enlisting as a U.S. Marine during the Vietnam War, Ray Buchanan quickly recognized that accomplishing a mission required “commitment to something larger than yourself.”

 

Driving Rise Against Hunger’s work is the recognition that ending hunger is more than just feeding people, which led Rise Against Hunger to focus its feeding programs in areas where we can have a real impact and expand its hunger-fighting programs beyond meal packaging and distribution.

Rise Against Hunger involves volunteers because we want to engage as many people as possible in the movement to eradicate hunger. We do so by providing an immensely fulfilling, impactful and fun experience for volunteers.

Our events also serve as a platform to educate people about hunger, what they can do about it, and to inspire them to take further action. Creating such a movement through educating people about the issue is essential to creating the will to mobilize the necessary resources to end hunger in our lifetime.
