Event Details

Join Temple Beth-El, and the rest of the San Antonio Jewish community at our Rise Against Hunger event, where we will package over 20,000 meals for developing communities around the world. This program will be on Sunday, December 12 at 12:00 p.m.

Volunteers of all ages will have the opportunity to prepare and package meals for developing nations with Rise Against Hunger, a national organization dedicated to fighting hunger on a global scale. Our goal this year, is to reach over 20,000 meals! Together, Rise Against Hunger and Temple Beth-El are hosting this event, which will allow our community to participate in this unique, interactive, and fun service opportunity. The event will start at 12:00 p.m.

To ensure a large amount of meals to put together and that we meet our goal of 20,000, we will need to donate as much money as we can before and on the day of the event. Although volunteering is free, please consider giving just $0.34 for a meal!

$5 provides 15 meals
$34 provides 100 meals
$69 provides 200 meals
$102 provides 300 meals
$170 provides 500 meals

Any amount donated to the event counts, so give what you can! 40 to 50 volunteers can pack over 10,000 meals in a short time, but we want to do more! The more volunteers we get – the more food we can pack! If you would like to volunteer for and/or donate to Temple Beth-El’s Rise Against Hunger event, sign up online click here.
