Rise Against Hunger

Saturday, January 26th
9:00 AM – 12:00 PM
Community Center at Chatham
115 S Main Street, Chatham

Be one of 50 volunteers who will package 10,000 meals to be distributed to hungry people around the world. We will gather at 9 AM for setup and begin packing meals at 10 AM. We expect to wrap up between 12:30 – 1:00 PM.  After we adjourn, we’ll head to lunch for an optional “dutch treat” lunch.

Volunteers must sign up in advance at a club meeting or by registering online
or by emailing Inez Rodenburg 

What to Expect
Volunteers set up and take down packaging stations and equipment, fill bins with raw ingredients, scoop ingredients into meal bags, weigh and seal the bags, box and stack them on pallets, and load the pallets and equipment onto a truck. Volunteers should wear comfortable shoes and casual clothes.  Rotarians should wear their Rotary shirt.

Rise Against Hunger gets food and life-saving aid to the world’s most vulnerable people, and works to end global hunger in our lifetime. Established in 1998, we have provided over 225 million meals in 73 countries. We are based in Raleigh, N.C., and operate throughout the U.S. and through affiliates in developing countries.

Guests are Welcome
Prospective members will learn about Rotary. Rotarians will receive a makeup. Family and friends are welcome to sign up with Rotarians. Teens age 14 and up are welcome but must be accompanied by an adult. Inviting a guest is easy! Just use the share links in this email.
