Your faith community can make a major global impact from right where you are. Rise Against Hunger offers the unique opportunity to host a hands-on international service project at the location of your choice. Our world is rapidly changing, but one thing that remains constant in the faith community is the call to serve those in need.

  1. Hosting a Rise Against Hunger event builds attendance and membership as volunteers from your local community gain exposure to your organization.
  2. Position your event to build momentum for the start of a faith season or campaign.
  3. Meal packaging events tangibly engage younger generations in your mission and make great youth service projects.
  4. Events promote volunteer engagement and team building — they are a unique and fun way to “break the mold” of a traditional event while working together toward a common goal.
  5. Partnering with Rise Against Hunger helps transform lives! Not only will the lives of those that receive the meals be transformed, but attendees feel the transformational experience for those that they are serving.

Let us help your community make a lasting impact in the lives of people in need around the globe. By packaging nutritious meals, respond to crisis, or supporting a sustainable initiative, you are making a real difference for the 1 in 9, or 815 million, people who experience hunger on a daily basis.

Let’s make an impact together! Contact me today:

CRS Helping Hands: Embody Christ’s Love

CRS Helping Hands is a Catholic volunteer and formation event that allows participants to serve their brothers and sisters overseas in a tangible way. Rooted in the Eucharistic imperative to be the hands and feet of Christ in the world, participants work together to address hunger in both the short term and the long term.

CRS educates volunteers about the people and country they are helping, ships the meals and provides skills training and other long-term programs that help break the cycle of hunger. To learn more,  please watch this CRS Helping Hands video.
