Since our last Rise Against Hunger event in 2015, you have made and eaten prize-winning chili, donated generously on multiple occasions, and dreamed big about making a record number of meals! Well, WE DID IT!! Together we have raised the funds necessary to make 3 times the number of meals we did the last time! This Sunday, we are planning to make over 35,000 meals for the Rise Against Hunger project!! That number represents a meal for every school-aged child in Knoxville. The meals we make will be sent all over the world to high impact areas. Last time, our packaged meals were sent to schools in Madagascar. That means children were able to have nutritious meals and attend school (instead of begging for food.) This project is effectively breaking the cycle of poverty!!!
Since we’ve upped our game, we need you’re help! Everyone 4 years old and older is invited to help us make these meals after Church this Sunday, May 21. It should take us a couple of hours if we get 150 volunteers. You can fill out sign up forms on Sunday, or sign up NOW by following this link:
