Give Back This Giving Season: 5 Ways to Help End Hunger!

By Hannah Payne on December 13, 2019

It’s the holiday season, the season of giving! If you’re looking for a way to give back and deepen your impact this holiday season and beyond, there’s a myriad of ways you can help Rise Against Hunger carry out our mission of ending hunger in our lifetime! 
Unbox Hope
When our beneficiaries unbox the Rise Against Hunger meals in-country, the meals are more than just food”” they’re also a representation of hope and brighter futures for all who receive them! Through donating today, you can help communities worldwide unbox hope!

If you’ve ever been to a Rise Against Hunger Experience meal packaging event, you know there’s a lot that goes into packaging the meals. There’s plenty going on behind the scenes at our 28 U.S locations in order to have these events happen without a hitch. You can help support our meal packaging operations by becoming a local volunteer! You would help our locations with various tasks, like restocking supplies, preparing shipments before they’re sent to our partners, or organizing equipment and ingredients. No matter what task you do when you volunteer, you can know you’re making an impact and helping people in need around the world!

Host a Rise Against Hunger Experience
You can help end hunger with your school, church, business, or organization by hosting a Rise Against Hunger Experience meal packaging event! Your volunteer group would truly be “lending a hand” as you package rice, soy, dehydrated vegetables, and vitamins into bags that will then be distributed to people in need across the globe. Groups of all sizes and ages can participate in the Rise Against Hunger Experience!
