Pack a half million meals in one day? Nothing is impossible with Jesus.

March 21, 2020

We will host a meal packing event in different locations across GNJ with the goal of packing 500,000 meals in one day! There are more than 7 billion people in this world and more than 800 million of them are hungry. Everyone deserves an education and the opportunity flourish – but in order to do this they need enough to eat.

Let’s change the world together!

Rising Together Against Hunger

GNJ has invited Rise Against Hunger to partner with us in packing meals. Rise Against Hunger will provide the food and materials and the people of Greater New Jersey will pack these meals for individuals and families around the world.

Congregations are encouraged to use this event to engage new people in mission:  youth groups, community members, neighbors, scout troops, school groups, seniors and more. There is no fee.
