Rise Against Hunger

Rise Against Hunger

One of the goals of the St. Margaret Mary Human Concerns Committee this year has been to:

  • Promote an understanding of the teachings of Jesus and the Catholic Church on social justice issues and explore ways to witness to those teachings. 
  • With that in mind, the HCC made the commitment to partner with the St. Gabriel HCC in sponsoring and holding a meal packaging event which will provide substance for third world countries who suffer the poverty of insufficient food.

Currently, 815 million people in our world are impacted by hunger

Please pray for the success of this event,

  • for those who will receive the meals we package,
  • for those who suffer from food insecurity,
  • for an end to world hunger. Together we can make a difference


The meal packaging event is going to be held on Sunday afternoon, June 3, 2018 at St. Gabriel Allen Center gym located at 900 Geiger Street, Neenah.  We are planning to pack 20,304 meals in two shifts.

Shift one:  1:00 p.m.-:2:15 p.m. 

Shift two:  2:30 p.m.-3:45 p.m.

We need volunteers from St. Margaret Mary.  We are encouraging families to participate.  Free child care is being provided on site by the SMM FACES group.

There is particular need to staff the second shift.

Each meal costs 29 cents. Funding for our half of the cost is being provided by the SMM Parish Outreach Fund.

If you can help, there is a sign-up table in the gathering space April 21/22, or you can go on line to register at:
