Our last event was in October 2016. Please subscribe to our weekly e-mail to hear about future events.

St. Stephen’s will attack world hunger by packing and sending meals for hungry people with Stop Hunger Now. Last year, over 300 people, many of whom had never been to our church, together reached our goal of packing 50,000 meals for our 50th anniversary. This year we’re trying to do 53,000 for our 53rd year of ministry. Plan to come, and bring your family and friends to this fun and meaningful event. There will be a D.J. while we work, and food trucks available for lunch afterward. Plan on it! October 15, 10am-1pm.

What is Stop Hunger Now?

Stop Hunger Now’s meal packaging program is a volunteer-based program that coordinates the streamlined packaging of highly nutritious dehydrated meals comprised of rice, soy, vegetables, flavoring and 21 essential vitamins and minerals. The meals are easily transported to crisis-burdened areas or supplied to school feeding programs around the world. The meals cost only $0.25 per meal to create.

2013: Mission Accomplished!

On Saturday October 19th, 2013, the whole church and community gathered to package 50,000 Stop Hunger Now meals to be sent ’round the world to feed our brothers and sisters.

We were hoping for 200 volunteers from the church and community to help us pack 50,000 meals. In stead we ended up with 350 volunteers and packed 50,382 meals! It seems that’s just how God works. A huge thank you goes out to every meal-packer and to everyone who helped set-up, clean-up, or bought lunch for a neighbor. It was a wonderful day!
