In honor of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America’s 25th Anniversary, Emmanuel members had another packaging event on September 8, 2013. Our individual goal is more modest than our community events but 15,000 meals were joyfully prepared and sent to those in great need.
Stop Hunger Now is a Raleigh, NC based international hunger relief agency that has been fulfilling its commitment to end hunger for 13 years. The Stop Hunger Now meal packaging program perfected the assembly process that combines rice, soy, dehydrated vegetables and a flavoring mix including 21 essential vitamins and minerals into small meal packets.
At the community level in 2013, with leadership from Vienna Presbyterian Church, Emmanuel Lutheran Church and other area churches and civic organizations plus about 1,000 volunteers, we packaged over 160,000 meals.
The need for funding and volunteers never stops though. Our goal for the April 5, 2014 event is 250,000 meals. Please click here to be taken to the Northern Virginia Stop Hunger Now web site for information about our event. Thank you!!
