RISE Fitness takes a stand against hunger

October 1, 2017

Nearly 50 people came together Sept. 24 at RISE Fitness in Rehoboth to help package more than 10,000 meals for RISE Against Hunger, an international relief effort. More localized is the emergency relief to areas affected by hurricanes Irma and Harvey supporting over 11,000 in Harvey’s wake, and at least 10,000 meals were provided after Irma’s destruction in Florida, Haiti and St. Maarten.

Just add boiling water: Dry soy, rice and vegetables made up the meal pack which feeds six people. The meal includes a vitamin pack, designed for a specific need. Dave Cook with RISE Against Hunger said 815 million people are facing malnourishment in the world, and 20,000 people die daily from hunger because of global crises and natural disasters. 

Dr. Uday Jani said, “We can always give money to help people out, but we wanted the community to come together to use their own hands to make food that is going to help another community,“
