Rise Against Hunger


For several years, the Rotary Club of Marietta Metro has supported Rise Against Hunger. It is a program where pouches are packed with rice, dried vegetables and vitamins. When the packets are hydrated, they provide a meal for six. Typically, thousands of meal packets are prepared in one session and they are delivered as needed around the world. Because of COVID, the event was not held in Marietta this year. Hopefully, things will improve and it can be conducted in fall of 2021. Marietta Metro typically contributes $500 and provides 10-15 volunteers.
