Stop Hunger Now Event at River Landing

This weekend, River Landing at Sandy Ridge (this is where Project:Re3 currently meets), sponsored a Stop Hunger Now event.  On Saturday, over 200 volunteers came together.  The volunteers were from River Landing, from Project:Re3 and the community.  The volunteers packaged 100,000 meals!

This event was fun for all ages, and the community spirit and spirit of service was contagious. Children as young as 4 were helping, and residents that live at River Landing packaged meals.

 Stop Hunger Now meal packaging events are a volunteer-based program that coordinates the streamlined packaging of highly nutritious dehydrated meals comprised of rice, soy, vegetables, flavoring, and 21 essential vitamins and minerals.  Founded in 1998, Stop Hunger Now has delivered aid and disaster relief supplies in the form of food, medical supplies, clothing, school supplies, and more to thousands of disaster victims and other hungry and vulnerable people in 65 countries.
Each meal costs $.25 to make.  Tax-deductible donations can be made through Stop Hunger Now’s website by clicking here

All ages volunteered.
