World Food Day celebrates a day of action dedicated to tackling global hunger. With a common goal of reaching a world of zero hunger, companies and organizations across the globe chose to use World Food Day as an opportunity to promote awareness and action by hosting Rise Against Hunger Experience meal packaging events. Take a look at the photos below to see how we were able to connect communities and take action the Rise Against Hunger Experience way!

Thanks to the Raleigh community’s efforts to support our mission of ending world hunger, we packaged over 10,000 meals for people in need.

For every meal packaged, there is a sense of hope that leaves the hands of our volunteers and touches the hearts of our beneficiaries. To join our mission, find out more ways you can get involved and take action by donating now.
