This annual event caught the attention of WRAL News, who broadcast live from the event. In case you missed it, this is the video from their broadcast along with a nice write-up. We’re so thankful to our members and all those that helped to make this extraordinary event possible! “What we do by ourselves matters; What we do together, really makes the difference.” “When we give we get back.”

Rise Against Hunger Meal Packaging Event BIG Success
The meal packaging event hosted by Serve The Need was a success. Over 75 volunteers scooped, dumped, weighed, packed, loaded and shipped 35,000 meals in under 4 hours on Saturday, April 15th at the Clayton Civitan Building in Clayton, NC.
“This event is held yearly on the 3rd Saturday in April. We always have a good turn-out and everyone helps. From the youngest child to the eldest adult. There is something that each person can do to make this a success — and we did!” said Tom Ricks, organizer of the annual event.
Thank you to Zaxby’s for donating the spicy nuggets and chicken strips for our volunteers to have lunch. Thank you to the 75+ volunteers and a very special thank you to Rise Against Hunger team who is very professional and instrumental in making sure the world is fed.
Our 35,000 meals will most likely head to Mozambique, Africa. For more information about Rise Against Hunger, please visit their website at www.riseagainsthunger.org
