Triangle Presbyterian Church (TPC) is excited to announce our 4th Triangle Community Rise Against Hunger Meal Packaging Event. We invite you and your family to join TPC and other churches, businesses and organizations from across the Triangle to participate in this very meaningful and worthwhile project to help feed hungry families around the world. This event is packed full of fun as volunteers of all ages work side by side to combine rice, soy protein, dried vegetables and essential vitamin and mineral packets into individual bags, weigh and seal the bags and place them in boxes to be shipped. The goal of this project is to raise funds for and package a minimum of 80,000 meals for Rise Against Hunger to distribute to hungry families internationally. The meals are distributed to orphanages, schools, medical clinics, countries experiencing natural disasters and other similar locations in desperate need of these meals. For more information about the Stop Hunger Now organization, including a list of their international distribution partners, please visit

Each meal costs 29 cents to package and ship. Our goal to package a minimum of 80,000 meals sets our minimum fundraising goal for this event at $20,200.
