Although the LOAF sponsored Rise Against Hunger event is not until Sept 21 it is not too early to ask for donations so we can see how many meals we will be able to afford. One bag of rice, soy, vegetables, and vitamins, when reconstituted, serves 6 and costs $2 (a little price increase from 2017). So if you would like to provide a nourishing meal for 6 people for whom food security is uncertain please send $2. $10 will feed 30 and so on. Our minimum goal is 10,000 meals so we are on a mission to raise $3400.
If you want to help please send a check made out to LOAF and mail it to LOAF, PO Box 494, Cortland. Please note on the check memo that it is for RAH as LOAF supports other projects like the Christmas concert and Vacation Bible School.
If you want to help on Sept. 21 please let Jean Bolinger know at firstname.lastname@example.org. She needs your name and phone number. Volunteers are needed Sept. 21 from 9am-noon or a little longer.
