Rise Agains Hunger

On Sunday, February 4, following the 11:00 a.m. worship service, we will gather in the Fellowship Hall to put together 20,000 meals for Rise Against Hunger (formerly Stop Hunger Now).  The meals cost 29-cents each or $5,800 for 20,000.  The Souper Bowl offering collected by our Middle School youth group on February 4, and some money in the church budget will be used to offset this cost.  Additional donations are welcomed.  The meals are usually  shipped overseas to an area to assist children who are attending school.  In 2017 they went to Haiti.

Ages 4 and up work together to package meals of soy protein, dried vegetables, rice, and packaged  vitamins in small plastic bags.  The bags are sealed and boxed in boxes before being loaded on the truck to go to the warehouse where they will await shipment.  A sign-up table will be  outside the sanctuary in January.
