For June’s GIFT (Generations in Faith Together) event, Christ Memorial Presbyterian Church will be working with Rise Against Hunger (previously Stop Hunger Now) to package meals. This year we plan to package 20,000 meals, and we’ll need your help! All ages from 4 years and up are welcome to participate. Please let us know if childcare is needed for younger children.
The morning shift is full. We still need volunteers for the 1 p.m. – 3 p.m shift.

The assembly process combines rice, soy, dehydrated vegetables, and a flavoring mix that includes 23 essential vitamins and minerals into small meal packages. The meals are shipped throughout the world to support school feeding programs, orphanages, and crisis relief. The food is stored easily, transported quickly, and has a shelf-life of two years.
