FedEx Reaches 1 Million Meals Packaged to Help End Hunger
Rise Against Hunger’s work to end global hunger wouldn’t be possible without others — like FedEx — joining our mission. FedEx has partnered with us since 2014. Committed to the communities we serve around the world, FedEx has hosted over 70 Rise Against Hunger Experience meal packaging events and engaged thousands of FedEx employees across the globe in the packaging of nutritious meals to support people facing hunger. And last month, FedEx reached a major, impactful milestone — 1 million meals packaged with Rise Against Hunger!
On January 16, 2023, over 700 FedEx employees worked together to honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s legacy with a day of service. FedEx team members packaged over 170,000 meals that day in nine cities across the United States: Atlanta, Georgia; Houston, Texas; Indianapolis, Indiana; Los Angeles, California; Memphis, Tennessee; Newark, New Jersey; Orlando, Florida; Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania; and Lorton, Virginia. With the meals packaged in those nine locations that day, FedEx surpassed 1 million meals. Here are a few highlights from those events:
The meals packaged by FedEx since 2014 have had a huge impact, providing people facing hunger with immediate nourishment. In addition to packaging meals, FedEx has also partnered with Rise Against Hunger by supporting our gift-in-kind efforts. We are so grateful for FedEx’s continued support of our mission to end global hunger!
