Rise Against Hunger National Capital was founded in 2012 and serves the greater Washington, D.C. and Baltimore regions. Through 2019, more than 98,500 volunteers from local groups including companies, schools and communities of faith including the Korean Central Presbyterian, Christ Church Fairfax Station and the McClean Community have teamed up to make a difference! In 2019 alone, this region engaged volunteers to package nearly 3.9 million meals. We’ve been fortunate to send meals to 30 countries including Malawi, Peru, the Congo, Mozambique, Nicaragua, El Salvador, Honduras and more. The National Capital team is always looking for new opportunities to engage our local community! Contact us today to set up a meeting.

Partner Spotlight

We had two fantastic events during the first quarter of 2019.

Oakdale Emory United Methodist Church sponsored a 10,000 Meal Packaging Event for Cornerstone Schools in South East D.C. Students had a blast doing this service project!

Old Bridge United Methodist Church partnered with Kababayan Inc, a Filipino Community Organization, to package 25,000 meals for students in Swaziland. The turnout was great and the event was flawless!

Take Hunger Into Your Own Hands

Meal packaging events offer a powerful way to make a hands-on impact on world hunger. You raise the funds and rally your friends and family as volunteers, and we'll take care of the rest.
