What Is Meal Packaging?
It is an immensely fun, hands-on and rewarding experience for anyone of any age. A group of 40 to 50 volunteers can package 10,000 meals in just two hours. FastPrayGive funds these packaging events with our partner Rise Against Hunger (formerly Stop Hunger Now). We take these packaging events into churches and settings where we can introduce people to the movement to end world hunger.
How Does This Help?
Rise Against Hunger (formerly Stop Hunger Now) meals are nutritiously sound. Every dehydrated rice/soy meal is fortified with 23 essential vitamins and nutrients. Research has shown that one in three people in developing countries are adversely affected by vitamin and mineral deficiencies. Addressing the problem of hunger is the single point where we can leverage relief for all humanitarian issues.
With your support, relief organizations such as Rise Against Hunger (formerly Stop Hunger Now) have the means to deliver to ongoing school feeding programs that sustain lifelong change. Providing a hot meal during school gives parents an incentive to send their children to school. Through receiving a primary school education, the cycle of poverty can begin to be broken by leveraging change in many other issues including education, maternal health, childhood mortality, gender equality and combating HIV/AIDS.
