Stop Hunger Now: A 5th Sunday Meal Packaging Event

Join us after 10:30am worship on Sunday, January 29th for a 5th Sunday meal packaging event in partnership with Stop Hunger Now, a non-profit organization whose mission mission is to end hunger in our lifetime by providing food and life-changing aid to the world’s most vulnerable.

Did you know that…

  • Under- nutrition is associated with more than half of all childhood deaths?
  • 5 to 6 million children die each year from infections that would not have killed them if they had been properly fed?
  • There is enough food in the world to feed everyone 4.3 pounds of food every day?
  • More people die each year from hunger-related causes than from HIV/AIDS, malaria, and tuberculosis combined?
  • Every year about 2 trillion pounds of food is lost or wasted?
  • School feeding programs ensure programs ensure that more children attend school, stay in school longer, and are able to find their way out of poverty?

Stop Hunger Now will bring all the ingredients and equipment to First Pres and work with us to educate us about world hunger and give instructions on how to assemble the ingredients.  We will package 10,152 meals to be sent to those areas where nutrition is most needed.

Once the meals are packaged, they will be distributed to one of their international partners in any one of the 71-plus countries that the meals go to support.  We will learn where the meals are sent and the nonprofit that benefited from our work.

Please join us on January 29 after worship for a pizza  lunch before the packaging event.
