Leaders in Georgia manufacturing and supply chain community will combine forces for the fight against global hunger.
Leaders in the Metro Atlanta manufacturing and supply chain community will combine forces for the fight against global hunger on September 12, 2017, at the Georgia Tech Hotel and Conference Center. APICS Atlanta and the Georgia Manufacturing Alliance have partnered with Rise Against Hunger to conduct a meal-building operation. During this event, their target is to pack over 5,000 meals that will be distributed to those in need around the globe.
Founded in 1998 by Ray Buchanan, Rise Against Hunger’s mission is to end hunger in our lifetime by providing food and life-changing aid to the world’s most vulnerable people. They support safety net programs that provide nourishment as well as additional skills training or services that support the difficult journey out of poverty. Their volunteer-packaged meals support children’s attendance at school, incentivize adults to learn a new trade, or bolster a patients’ health to bring about transformational development in each of their lives.
