TAKE A LOOK AT PHOTOS OF 250 VOLUNTEERS (INCLUDING PRE-TEENS) PREPARING OVER 50,000 MEALS FOR THE HUNGRY THAT WILL BE SENT ALL OVER THE WORLD


On Saturday morning   over 250 volunteers did something special at the Greenville Elementary School in Edgemont. They prepared over 50,000 meals for the hungry that will be sent  to people who are hungry all over the world.  It was inspiring to see small children working hard preparing the meals - along with their parents and  other adults from the community. Providing pre-teens with the chance to learn about hunger around the world and to bring smiles and help  food to the hungry  is fantastic.  A great way to start a life  --actually helping others. And doing something very important!

The Million Meal Project, a nonprofit organization, is launching this fall with a goal of packaging and distributing 1,000,000 meals to families in need all over the world by 2028. The organization will partner with global nonprofit Rise Against Hunger and other local organizations to host monthly meal packaging events in the Edgemont community over the next five years.. The Million Meal Project is run by the Blumberg Family of Edgemont, NY.


“Our family volunteered earlier in the year for a Rise Against Hunger event hosted by the Edgemont Community Council at Seely Place Elementary School and was inspired,” said Casey Blumberg, Wilson Blumberg, and Elyse Blumberg, co-founders of the Million Meal Project. “We had a lot of fun with friends at the event and were impressed with how easy it was to volunteer our time and make such a difference in so many lives.”


"The Million Meal Project's goal to package one million meals over the next five years will be incredibly impactful for the people Rise Against Hunger serves around the world. Our work to end hunger starts with a meal because, for those facing hunger, a meal can provide needed nutrition and support education, health and opportunities for bright futures," said Richard Kearney, Interim CEO of Rise Against Hunger.

Thank you to the Blumberg family and to all the volunteers for being inspirations and role models.
