Rise Against Hunger

Come help us pack
10,000 15,000 meals!
We are so excited about this increase and the ability to feed more people—we’ve re-opened the registration link, looking for 5 more people per shift!!
Chamblee First UMC is hosting a meal packing event with Rise Against Hunger which distributes food worldwide to help feed communities hit the hardest with food insecurity. Chamblee First has hosted this event many times in the past and we’re looking forward to hosting it again after taking a COVID break. This is a family-friendly event and children as young as 4 years old are welcome accompanied by a parent. Registration is required.
1. Everyone is required to register for this event in advance.
2. One adult should fill out the registration form and sign the online waiver for each family unit.
3. Count any additional family members attending and enter this number in the “I am bringing ___ of my immediate family members.” box.
4. If an adult is registering for a youth but the adult is not attending:
a. Use the child’s name in the Contact Information section.
b. Enter a zero in the “I am bringing ___ of my immediate family members” box.
