growing together
Let’s Rise Against Hunger together! Come help us package 20,000 meals on Sunday afternoon, November 22 at the Rise Against Hunger Warehouse located at 5022 Byrd Industrial Dr., Henrico, VA 23231. COVID-19 has upended global supply chains and increased food insecurity. The meals we package that day will be distributed to orphanages, schools, medical clinics, countries experiencing natural disasters, and other similar locations in desperate need of these meals, particularly with this pandemic. This is an opportunity for multiple generations to reach out and serve our hungry neighbors around the world!  

  • There are three shifts available for work: 1:00-2:15, 2:30-3:45, 4:00-5:15. 
  • Each shift can hold 20 people total.
  • This year, because of COVID guidelines at the warehouse, we are asking that those ages 10 and up volunteer.
  • The facility is not climate controlled, so it will be chilly at that time of the year!
  • Participants will be standing during their shifts, but please let us know if chairs are needed for those needing assistance.
  • Restrooms are available.
  • Please bring your mask! (Gloves and hairnets will be provided at the warehouse.)
Please email or call Ingrid Cox if you have any questions regarding this event., 550-9469.
