Langley Pyramid Rise Against Hunger Event is Back

Rise Against Hunger


Dear Churchill Road Elementary School families, 

On Saturday, February 4, 2023, families in the Langley Pyramid are joining together again to help children in need. In partnership with Rise Against Hunger, the Langley pyramid elementary, middle, and high schools are coming together with a goal to prepare 83,000 meal packages for schools and orphanages around the world.  

As many of you remember, we held our last Rise Against Hunger event in February 2020. This event was a huge success and provided a wonderful service learning opportunity for children and adults of all ages to actually make the meals. Each meal we make costs 42 cents. For just $15, one can donate over 35 meals; $30 will make over 70 meals and $100 will make nearly 280 meals. 

In order to reach our goal of 83,000 meals, the Langley Pyramid goal is to raise $35,000 by January 27th.  

Donate and help raise money for the event

  • Students: Tomorrow, Friday, December 16, students will bring home a small box in which to collect this money over the holiday break.  Each student is encouraged to contribute loose change or money they earn and wish to donate to Rise Against Hunger.

About Rise Against Hunger 

Rise Against Hunger is a 4-star rated organization that sends nutrient-rich, dehydrated meal packages to developing countries around the world. These meal packages are delivered to families through the schools.  In developing countries, children may not attend school to receive a formal education, so in part as a result of this program, more children are being encouraged to attend school to receive a hot meal at school and additional meal packages for their families.  As an additional benefit, more children are also receiving a formal education.
