In July, the Philadelphia team had the honor of packaging meals with St. Thomas Syro Malabar Catholic Forane Church in Philadelphia! In their first ever Rise Against Hunger Experience, STSMCFC packaged over 50,000 meals and engaged over 300 volunteers! With superb fundraising and volunteer efforts they exceeded their original goal and in just under two hours were able to make a lasting impact on over 200 lives. We are so excited to see how this community continues to deepen their impact. Thank you so much, STSMCFC, for joining us in Growing the Movement to end hunger in our lifetime!
