Rise Against Hunger and Clif Bar & Company joined forces in the fight against hunger on June 21, 2017, at the Emeryville Center of Community Life. More than 374 Clif Bar employees packaged meals to fight food insecurity and malnutrition around the world.
Rise Against Hunger (formerly Stop Hunger Now) meal packaging events are a volunteer-based program that coordinates the streamlined packaging of highly nutritious dehydrated meals comprised of rice, soy, vegetables and 23 essential vitamins and minerals.
“We believe sustaining our community is one of our responsibilities as a business,” said Cassie Cyphers, Community Programs Manager of Clif Bar, which is headquartered in Emeryville. “It’s an honor to partner with Rise Against Hunger to help address the critical issue of hunger in our global community.”
Through its Clif Corps program, Clif Bar employees are encouraged to volunteer in their local communities on company time. Last year, Clif employees donated 14,985 volunteer hours to a variety of non-profit organizations. Employees typically volunteer in small groups, but once a year, all employees in the Emeryville office volunteer together side by side to expand their impact.
Around the world, more than 792.5 million people lack adequate food. One in nine people in the world go to bed hungry each night. Rise Against Hunger meal packaging events give volunteers the opportunity to make a hands-on difference in helping to end world hunger. Rise Against Hunger works to meet immediate nutritional needs today…
