Rise Against Hunger

Every year St Mark's invites the congregation and the surrounding community to come and pack thousands of meals for Rise Against Hunger. These meals help to support school feeding programs in developing countries. Targeting hunger--specifically by supporting school feeding programs--leverages support for other causes including poverty, disease, education, and the welfare of women and children.

On October 7th 2017  members of the St Mark's family and the surrounding community packed 30,024 meals to be sent to Haiti to feed school-age children as they learn! We have since packed tens of thousands more meals for people around the world.
