Rise Against Hunger New England was founded in 2013 and serves the New England and Upstate New York regions. In 2019, more than 13,100 local volunteers and partnering organizations, including Charles River Laboratories, Rotary District 7910 and Berklee College of Music have helped build the local movement to end global hunger. In this region alone, through 2019, about 13.6 million meals have been packaged to benefit 14 countries.
Want to help grow the movement in the New England area? We have a lot of volunteer and service projects available as well as joining our champion volunteer team. Ready to get started? Please complete our volunteer interest form and we’ll be in touch soon! If you are interested in hosting a meal packaging event, please fill out the form below.
Keene State has supported our mission and vision for over four years! Using our meal packaging experience as a component of their orientation allows the University to instill a core value of service into the new class.
