TOGETHERHOOD® PROJECT: VOLUNTEER TO END HUNGER 3.6
Every 3.6 seconds someone in the world dies of starvation In New Jersey, more than one million people are living below the poverty line. One in five children is hungry and relying on food stamps for meals. The Madison Area YMCA is joining the Madison Rotary Club for a community-wide event called End Hunger 3.6 to help feed the hungry in the NJ-NYC area. We plan to prepare and package 250,000 non-perishable meals to be distributed to hunger-focused organizations.
