Pierce Chapel United Methodist Church worked to prevent hunger around the world Saturday with a Stop Hunger Now event. More than 100 church members gathered to prepare about 14,000 packets for the international hunger relief organization. Each packet contains six servings of rice, protein, dried vegetables and a vitamin supplement. The church raised $3,570 for the event, which is part of its Mission Awareness program called Global Impact Celebration. Stop Hunger Now, based in Raleigh, N.C., will ship the meals overseas.
