Rise Against Hunger

Each year (Sunday after Easter), Bridgewater UMC offers a meal packing event.  All church members and friends of all ages are participated in this mission event annually.  In 2023, we packed 20,000 meals.

Rise Against Hunger is an international hunger relief non-profit organization that coordinates the packing and distribution of food and other life-changing aid to people in developing nations.  Since 2005 Rise Against Hunger has distributed more than 315 million meals to recipients in 74 countries with a mission to end hunger in our lifetime.  Each highly nutritious dehydrated meal is comprised of rise, soy, vegetables, and 23 vitamins and minerals.

As the humanitarian relief and development arm of The United Methodist Church, the United Methodist Committee on Relief – UMCOR – assists United Methodists and churches to become involved globally in direct ministry to persons in need. UMCOR comes alongside those who suffer from natural or human-caused disasters – famine, hurricane, war, flood, fire or other events—to alleviate suffering and serve as a source of help and hope for the vulnerable. UMCOR provides relief, response and long-term recovery grants when events overwhelm a community’s ability to recover on their own. UMCOR also provides technical support and training for partners to address emerging and ongoing issues related to disaster relief, recovery, and long-term health and development.
