RISE team members and their families joined over 1,700 other volunteers last weekend packing meals and books at Hunger Fight’s 10th Annual Thanksgiving Community Outreach Packing Event on November 11 & 12 in Jacksonville, FL. Eighty-seven organizations and businesses came together to produce 427,560 meals as well as pack 20,000 books to distribute to local children.
Hunger Fight is based in Jacksonville but maintains additional offices throughout North Florida and South Georgia. Hunger fight works with businesses, foundations, and community groups to host packing events. They work with thousands of volunteers to end hunger and illiteracy for local children by providing them meals and books that keep them well-fed and well-read.
