Community invited to 'Rise Against Hunger'

Valley Presbyterian Church is hosting a "fun and hands-on service activity to reduce world hunger" on Sunday, Oct. 6, from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the church, 945 Portola Road in Portola Valley.

Participants will work together to assemble rice-based meals to ship to Southeast Asia to deliver to those in need as part of a project of the nonprofit Rise Against Hunger.

"Anyone aged 4 through adult can get involved, so entire families can participate, as well as friend groups, individual neighbors, athletic teams, or school and corporate organizations," a spokesperson for the church wrote in an email.

Last year, the church provided 20,000 fortified meals, "and this year the church plans to do the same, supporting a larger goal for 2 million meals coming from Silicon Valley," the spokesperson said.

The church welcomes drop-ins, but requests that, if possible, participants pre-register online here.
