Rise Against Hunger New England was founded in 2013 and serves the New England and Upstate New York regions. In 2017, more than 13,700 local volunteers and partnering organizations, including Charles River Laboratories, Rotary District 7910 and the Wilton Interfaith Action Committee, have helped build the local movement to end global hunger. In this region alone, through 2017, nearly 8.5 million meals have been packaged to benefit 12 countries.
Want to help spread the news of what we are doing to help end hunger in our lifetime? Contact us to help the New England area understand the importance of ending chronic undernourishment and how hosting an event can provide impactful and lasting change.
Keene State has run Meal Packaging Events with Rise Against Hunger New England for the past three years, engaging incoming students in ending hunger in our lifetime through their orientation program. This helps the university demonstrate the value of service to students and motivates them to seek solutions for challenges worldwide. In this time of “back to school,” we are excited to join with Keene State working with their students toward our mission.
