Hunger In Mercer County
There are 12,300+ food insecure children in Mercer County alone (Feeding America, 2014). Our goal is to alleviate childhood hunger in the greater Mercer County area through a food packing event. #sohhngr17
How It Works and How You Can Help
We need YOU to join us on June 27th for Mercer County’s largest meal packing event! At our 3rd annual Strike Out Hunger you will help weigh, pack, seal and box 200,000 oatmeal servings. Last year, we had 600 volunteers pack 100,000 meals and this year we plan to DOUBLE that amount.
Meet Sandra Toussaint-Burgher – President & Chief Executive Officer for United Way of Greater Mercer County
$25/per person – Your participation fee goes directly toward purchasing meals for food insecure children and event related expenses.
