5 million meal goal
Forever Living Products has announced plans to package five million meals with global non-profit Rise Against Hunger. Forever Living are expanding their partnership with Rise Against Hunger and packaging meals for the world’s hungry at events throughout Asia, Europe, the Middle East and South Africa.
Forever has set a goal of packing and donating a whopping five million meals over the next two years to Rise Against Hunger – a figure that we believe is achievable if all Forever Country Offices band together!
“The mission of Rise Against Hunger to both end world hunger and teach people the skills they need to live a healthy life, fits very well with the mission of Forever to improve lives” says O’ Hare. “The key to the success is the physical labor that our individual Business Owners put into this project. Participating in one of those meal packing events creates a better understanding of how many people live in less fortunate circumstances and how providing nutritional meals can be life changing for them. Besides that, we turn the meal packing events into fun experiences that increase the companionship among them.”
Worldwide, 821 million people do not eat enough. From twenty cities in the United States, six international locations in South Africa, Malaysia, the Philippines, Italy, India and Peru, Rise Against Hunger involves volunteers from churches, schools, associations, as well as companies like us, in this project.
Rise Against Hunger meal packaging events are a volunteer-based program that coordinates the streamlined packaging of highly nutritious dehydrated meals comprised of rice, soy, vegetables and 23 essential vitamins and minerals.
We want to say a huge thanks to all our amazing volunteers who helped in 2017 & 2018! We smashed our global goal of reaching over one million meals (2,741,030 meals packed, 24,918 lives nourished, 11,706 volunteers engaged, 27 global events held) and we now plan to pack even more in 2019!
