Every year, on the Sunday after Thanksgiving, the parish comes together to pack 20,000 meals in 2 hours that will be sent to various impoverished nations around the world. We partner with an organization call Rise Against Hunger.
Their goal is end hunger in our lifetime by providing food and life-changing aid to the world’s most vulnerable and creating a global commitment to mobilize the necessary resources.
It’s an exciting evening with jobs available for almost any age, even young children. It’s a little chaotic & a little noisy, but it is a joyful fulfilling evening.
We pay the Rise against Hunger organization $5000 for the food, packing equipment & shipping of the materials. That $5000 must be re-cooped, so we encourage donations to defray the costs of the event.
