PMB Rotary Supports Rise Against Hunger

On October 14th, 2023, five PMB Rotarians participated in the Rise Against Hunger event co-sponsored by the Phoenixville Rotary Club and held at the Phoenixville YMCA, PA.

While long-term food security projects take root, communities facing hunger still need to meet their basic needs today. Rise Against Hunger provide nutritional support through Rise Against Hunger meals, which contain 20 vitamins and minerals, and local regional procurement, which procures foods locally, to meet community needs. These safety net programs not only provide nourishment, but also support education, skills training, and health services that support the difficult journey out of poverty. As communities continue to experience a lack of access to food, Rise Against Hunger is working to expand their efforts to consistently provide nutritious food through educational settings to over 6 million people by 2025. Current Countries Engaged: Burundi | Democratic Republic of Congo | Ghana | Haiti | Honduras | India | Kenya | Madagascar | Nicaragua | Philippines | Somaliland | South Africa | Tanzania | Timor-Leste | Uganda | Vietnam | Zimbabwe
