Rise Against Hunger is an international hunger relief organization that distributes food and life-changing aid to the world’s most vulnerable, mobilizing the necessary resources to end hunger by 2030.

The event will be held on Saturday February 29, 2020,  at 9:30 am at Monta Vista High School in Cupertino. The Rotary clubs collectively contributed a total of $3,500.00 towards the project.

“The 10,152 packaged meals will be consolidated onto a shipping container that has space for 280,000 meals, “ said Terry Lewis, Community Engagement Coordinator of Rise Against Hunger.” 

“ Typically the meals from the RISE AGAINST HUNGER location end up with our Southeast Asian partners.  The meals packaged on the 29th will most likely be shipped within 1-2 months of the hands-on project event,” he added.

“Rotarians are here to serve and support our communities locally and internationally, and Rise Against Hunger is especially important as we collaborate to end hunger by packaging meals that will feed the most vunerable around the world.” said Helene Davis, Assistant Governor, Area 8, Rotary District 5170.
