I have participated in two meal packing events at the University of Richmond now, and both have been unique and energizing experiences. Both as a bag filler and a bag weigher, I have seen how the energy of the volunteers can come together to make an impact in the fight against hunger. Nowhere else have I seen such a successful collaborative effort towards solving a humanitarian problem. My contribution to ending hunger with Rise Against Hunger has also inspired me to continue the fight elsewhere as an intern with the Congressional Hunger Center, and I hope the meal packing events have inspired others to also pick up the fight elsewhere so that hunger will be eradicated at last.
