Who Says Work Can’t Be Fun? See How Our Passion Energizes Our Work Every Day!

By Hannah Payne on January 31, 2020

Did you know today is National Fun at Work Day? Whether it be at our headquarters in Raleigh, N.C., or one of our 28 U.S. locations, Rise Against Hunger employees are encouraged to have a positive work-life balance. And part of that balance comes from being passionate about our mission! Oprah Winfrey said, “Passion is energy,” and we couldn’t agree more! Our passion energizes us and we have a lot of fun while working to end hunger in our lifetime. Take a look at the photos below to see some of the ways we have fun at work!

This past December, our Philadelphia team got dressed up and gathered together with Hunger Champions from around the country for an exciting night of purpose at their 1st annual Impact Dinner!
Our Raleigh Assistant Community Engagement Manager, Zack Karges, was all smiles as this little girl enthusiastically rang the gong at a Rise Against Hunger Experience meal packaging event!
“Give me a R! Give me an A! Give me a H!” New staff members took a moment to pose for a picture while visiting one of our warehouses during orientation.
Our annual staff retreat is an important time for us to gather and focus on our mission to end hunger. It’s also a time for our staff to bond, as seen here with this high five!
Our Los Angeles Community Engagement Manager, DeRon Waller, snapped a quick picture as he worked to get meals ready to ship to El Salvador for people in need.
“Say cheese!” Our staff gather together at a community event for World Food Day 2019.
