What is the Meal Packing Event?
Rise Against Hunger is an international hunger relief organization that distributes food and life-changing aid to the world’s most vulnerable. Their meal packing program was created to give dedicated individuals and organizations — from businesses to civic clubs — the opportunity to participate in a hands-on international hunger relief program and to become educated, engaged advocates for the world’s hungry. The event involves the assembly-line packaging of highly nutritious dehydrated meals comprised of rice, soy, vegetables, and 23 essential vitamins and minerals.
There is nothing quite like working in the meal packing room — the feeling is electric! Hundreds of volunteers of all ages are working together, united in a common vision. There is music playing, people are singing along, dancing as they work. Every time a thousand meals have been loaded, a gong rings out, quickly followed by a loud cheer from everyone there.
It’s hands on. It’s fun. It’s satisfying. It’s meaningful. There truly is nothing like it.
We hope you'll join us in forming a meal-packing team!
