Want to Change the World?

We can't feed every hungry person on earth, but we can feed 30,000. Learn about an effort to combat global hunger, and how two hours of your time can change the world!

Have two hours to spare on April 21? 

You can change the world!

Who?  Brecksville United Methodist Church is working with Stop Hunger Now, an international hunger relief organization that coordinates the distribution of food and other life-saving aid around the world.

What?  The goal is for volunteers to package 30,000 dehydrated, high protein, and highly nutritious meals which will be used to support development programs and to save lives in developing countries around the world.

When?   Sunday, April 21.  We’ll have two shifts of packaging, one from 10 am until noon, and the second from noon until 2 pm.

Where?  Brecksville United Methodist Church, 65 Public Square, Brecksville.  Our main parking lot is located on Route 21, across the street from Starbucks. (Need more info? www.brecksvilleumc.com)

Why?   If not us, then who?  If not now, then when? It’s not enough to do nothing. It’s time for us to do something!”   These lyrics from the Matthew West song “Do Something” illustrate that the problem is not just the millions of people in the world who are in need, but the billions of people who know of the need but don’t take action.  We can’t feed every hungry person on earth, but we can feed 30,000.

How?  With your help!  We need about 80 volunteers per shift.  Everyone is welcome to help!  All ages are welcome, and there will be tasks for folks of any ability.  Kids as young as 8 years old can pitch in.  If you have little ones, nursery care will be provided from 10 am until noon.
