Help End Hunger in Our Lifetime
STOP HUNGER NOW!
Oakland is hosting a Stop Hunger Now meal packing event to fight hunger around the world. We are working with Stop Hunger Now to pack and deliver 1200 meals. There will be two shifts of volunteers packing meals. First shift runs from 6:00PM to 7:00PM and second shift from 7:00PM to 8:00PM. You can volunteer for a shift any Sunday between now and then.
