Rise Against Hunger

9 AM - 2:30 PM
Neabsco Elementary School 3800 Cordell Ave, Woodbridge, VA 22193

On March 18th, Lutheran Church of the Covenant in Dale City and the Woodbridge

Rotary Club will be hosting the 8th annual Rise Against Hunger packaging event at

Neabsco Elementary School. Rise Against Hunger is an international hunger relief

non-profit that coordinates the packaging and distribution of food and other aid

(including income-generating opportunities) to people in developing nations. This

is an intergenerational event; you can be 8 or 88 and make a difference.

Our goal this year is to package 30,000 meals. The cost of ingredients is $4000 per

10,000 meals, so we need to raise $12,000 total. Fundraising has started, and were on our way there. And, we really need volunteers - 60 people per two 2 1/2 hour shifts. In addition, to help out the local community, we're asking volunteers to bring non-perishable foods that day for the families at Neabsco Elementary, a Title 1 school. Volunteers can sign up and donate through this link. All who plan to attend our March 18th event should register using this event page:
