Upcoming Events

On September 13, we will be holding our first fundraising Tricky Tray event! This will be our largest fundraising event of the year! The Tricky Tray dinner is designed to raffle off prizes and to raise funds. The funds will continue to support Rise Against Hunger meal packing experiences and to make upgrades to our Kearny, NJ warehouse which will allow for a more streamlined and effective way to support meal packing experiences. This will support Rise Against Hunger’s vision of ending world hunger by the year 2030. We hope to see you there! Get your tickets today.
