The mission of Rise Against Hunger is to end hunger during our lifetime. Based in Raleigh, NC, SHN holds meal packing events in the United States, South Africa, Malaysia, Italy, India, Peru and the Philippines. And they ship these life-changing meals to the most vulnerable, malnourished communities around the globe. Collierville Christian Church has partnered with Rise Against Hunger for more than two years, hosting events, raising funds, and partnering with other congregations and institutions throughout Shelby County. At the most recent event, held in August 2016, more than 21,000 meals were packaged in just over 2 hours. Plans are currently being considered for Rise Against Hunger events in 2017.
