ABOUT US

Rise Against Hunger Richmond was founded in 2009 and serves the central southeastern Virginia region. Through 2016, thousands of local volunteers and partnering organizations, including Genworth Financial, St Ann’s Catholic Church, Orange Rotary and The Steward School, have helped build the local movement to end global hunger. In this region alone, through 2016, more than 18 million meals have been packaged to benefit 19 countries.
