Rise Against Hunger Raleigh was founded in 2005 and serves the central North Carolina region. In 2019, more than 25,000 local volunteers and partnering organizations, including Wake Forest – Mission Quake, Triangle Grace Church and Dunn Collaborative, helped build the local movement to end global hunger. In this region alone, through 2019, about 53.5 million meals have been packaged to benefit 35 countries.
The Raleigh warehouse does accept volunteer help with various tasks and can verify community service hours. Warehouse volunteers help support meal packaging operations by helping stage for events, restocking supplies, stacking aid pallets for shipment, sanitizing and organizing equipment, sorting merchandise and general cleaning. Labeling bags is a helpful task also, requiring limited physical exertion.
