STOP Hunger Now - A Rock Spring Fifth Sundays Event - October 30, 2016
Our next event is the ever-popular "Stop Hunger Now." Stop Hunger Now gets food and life-saving aid to the world’s most vulnerable people, and works to end global hunger in our lifetime. Established in 1998, they have provided over 225 million meals in 74 countries.
During the event, we will work in teams at each packaging station. Volunteers set up and take down packaging stations and equipment, fill bins with raw ingredients, scoop ingredients into meal bags, weigh and seal the bags, box and stack them on pallets. It is a multi-generational event. You can read more about this great organization here: http://www.stophungernow.org/host-meal-packaging-event/

You are certain to find something that nourishes your giving spirit and leave with a better understanding of the needs, hopes, and dreams of the people in your community, your country, and your world.
