It’s a Pilgrimage tradition to offer youth an opportunity to participate in service work on Saturday afternoon that puts their faith in action. We partner with Rise Against Hunger to provide an opportunity for youth to package highly nutritious meals to be sent to vulnerable populations around the world and learn about how Rise Against Hunger seeks to end hunger by 2030.
In 2017, 859 youth helped end global hunger by packaging 37,000 meals. Youth groups of all sizes are encouraged to participate and spend an hour of their Saturday transforming youthful energy into a sustainable mission of hunger relief. “Hunger doesn’t have to exist. Let’s end it together.”
