Millions of people around the world are starving, but what can we do about it? The Church of the Cross Stop Hunger Now Planning Team will be hosting a Stop Hunger Now packaging event April 29th at 10:00 a.m. at Cross Schools Campus!
We can make a BIG difference in a SMALL amount of time. We are in need of at least 200 volunteers ages 4 and older to help package 50,112+ meals. This is a family friendly event to help raise awareness and to help bring an end to world hunger. It only costs 29 cents per meal, so a small donation makes a big difference.
What is Stop Hunger Now? Stop Hunger Now is a Raleigh based international hunger relief agency. Since 1998, the organization has coordinated the distribution of food and other lifesaving aid to children and families in countries all over the world.
