ECSU Hosts Rise Against Hunger Community Event

World hunger is a serious crisis and Elizabeth City State University has been a partner with the greater Elizabeth City community to help feed people across the globe. On Nov. 19, ECSU is organizing and will host Rise Against Hunger, and is calling on the entire community to participate in this meal packaging event.

Last year, ECSU hosted the event for the organization, Stop Hunger Now, at the R.L. Vaughan Center.  The event was headed up by two local churches, and hundreds of community members gathered to package meals which were sent to hungry people in Haiti and the African nation of Zambia.

Stop Hunger Now is an organization that provides dry goods to be packaged as meals and boxed for shipment. Churches and community organizations hold events, asking people to spend an afternoon assisting with packing the meals.
