Brief Description of Event: 
792.5 million people in the world do not get the food they need to live a healthy life. One in nine people goes to bed hungry each night. Rise Against Hunger distributed food to 43 countries, packaged 64, 182,643 meals, and nourished 1,040,351 lives with 72% of those children, in 2016 alone! We invite you to participate in the annual interfaith service project to feed the hungry globally. Partnering with the international hunger relief organization, Rise Against Hunger, we will dry pack tens of thousands of meals for distribution across the world. It's a lively, fun few hours that provide life-changing aid to the world's most vulnerable. Please join us! And please consider a tax deductible contribution to the 501(c)(3) organization prior to August 31st as the number of meals we can pack is entirely dependent on the funds we provide Rise Against Hunger. You also can forward the web link to your colleagues, neighbors, friends and family so they can contribute to this vital humanitarian effort as well. http://events.stophungernow.org/ArlingtonLDS2017
