West Lawn Church to Host 3rd Rise Against Hunger Meal Packaging Event
For Samarah Joacchim, a 7th-grader in Haiti, school means life and hope for a future. But not just because of the education she will get there. For Samarah and millions of children around the world, attending school also means she will eat that day. “Without food I would be starving and my grades would be lower. Most of us rely on the food served at school to survive; this is the only meal we get for the day. I hope the feeding program will continue.”
More than 40 percent of Rise Against Hunger’s meals are distributed to school feeding programs around the world. Those meals encourage school attendance and help put these children and their families on a path out of poverty.
On Sunday, October 13th, beginning at 6:00 PM in the Community Center, West Lawn will package meals with Rise Against Hunger, but we need your help. Please consider serving to package meals at our event. With your help, we can help make sure children get the nutritious meals they need to grow and succeed.
Please contact Kelly Rismiller if you have any questions, or would like to sign up to serve! email@example.com
