Rise Against Hunger Jackson was founded in 2009 and serves the Mississippi, Louisiana, Southeast Arkansas, Memphis, Tuscaloosa, Mobile and Pensacola regions. In 2019, nearly 5,000 local volunteers and partnering organizations, including The United Methodist Church, Rotary and Memphis Interfaith, have helped build the local movement to end global hunger. In this region alone, through 2019, about 17.1 million meals have been packaged to benefit 18 countries around the globe.
We welcome volunteers to assist with the behind-the-scenes projects that make our Rise Against Hunger Experience Events possible. Projects include labeling bags, washing dishes and preparing materials for upcoming events. Please complete our volunteer interest form today and we’ll be in touch very soon!
