Event description


We know that many people in the world and in our area go hungry. That is why the Princeton individuals decided to reach out and do something about this issue. They partnered with Rise Against Hunger to bring food to individuals in need, globally and locally.

Princeton Ministerial Association is hosting the 2019 Rise Against Hunger at Jefferson Elementary School in Princeton, IL. The goal is to pack 30,000 meals in 2019. In 2018 we packed 20,000 meals and 10,000 meals in 2017. Each meal cost $.34 to make. This is so low because of the fact that people volunteer their time to pack these meals. The giving of your time is vital to the succes of this event.

We need your help in these areas.

1. Funds to cover this many meals, $10,000 to be exact. This may seem high but over half the funds have been raised.

2. Volunteers to pack the meals and those to help setup and tear down.

8am - Setup

9am - 1st Packing Session

10:30am - 2nd Packing Session

12:00pm - 3rd Packing Session

So on Febraury 9th please pick a time slot that you are willing to commit to. You can stay and help at more than one time slot. We just want to make sure that the minimum amount of vounteers are there to help pack the meals. Feel free to come as a group or individually.

SOY is used in the packing of these meals. We recommend you do not come to this event if you are allergic
