Rise Against Hunger Lynchburg was founded in 2008 and serves the region spanning from Winchester, Virginia, to South Boston. In 2019, more than 9,500 local volunteers helped build the local movement to end global hunger. In this region alone, throughout 2019, about 18 million meals have been packaged to benefit 20 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! If you are interested in hosting a Rise Against Hunger Experience meal packaging event, please complete our event interest form.
We would like to invite everyone to our “Give Back” Popup events every Tuesday night in November. We are holding events in the warehouse. Register to bring your family and friends (a group of 8-10 is best) to the warehouse for an evening of fun. Come package a box of meals. Each box is $75 and will help a child for an entire school year. Please click the links below to register for November. Thank you for helping to end world hunger.
Thank you to all the groups and volunteers that have made the month a huge success. Without you, Rise Against Hunger would not be able to provide the meals to the children and families of the world.
