OUR MISSION

Rise Against Hunger is driven by the vision of a world without hunger. Our mission is to end hunger in our lifetime by providing food and life-changing aid to the world’s most vulnerable and creating a global commitment to mobilize the necessary resources.

OUR HISTORY

In 1998, envisioning a world without hunger, Ray Buchanan — a United Methodist minister — founded Stop Hunger Now. In 2017, Stop Hunger Now rebranded to become Rise Against Hunger. After enlisting as a U.S. Marine during the Vietnam War, Ray Buchanan quickly recognized that accomplishing a mission required “commitment to something larger than yourself.”

Driving Rise Against Hunger’s work is the recognition that ending hunger is more than just feeding people, which led Rise Against Hunger to focus its feeding programs in areas where we can have a real impact and expand its hunger-fighting programs beyond meal packaging and distribution.

OUR WORK

Our organization’s approach to ending hunger centers on mobilizing a global network of hunger champions. Rise Against Hunger meal packaging volunteers produce millions of nutritious meals annually that are then distributed to partners in countries around the world. Those partners are best able to address the causes and effects of hunger based on their local presence and expertise. Through our thorough monitoring and evaluation process, we ensure the meals distributed by those partners are used as a tool to change lives by promoting education, improving students’ health and nutrition, addressing gender inequalities, stimulating economic growth and fighting child labor.

Another core focus of Rise Against Hunger is responding to crises–both natural and man-made. From droughts to floods, in conflict zones and transitioning political situations, food is often the most immediate need. When everyday access to food, wages, and market systems are destroyed in the wake of emergencies, Rise Against Hunger works through a network of in-country partners to address these needs. We strive to ensure aid is efficiently and effectively deployed to and received by communities when it is needed most.

Our third approach to eradicating hunger centers around grassroots community empowerment. Rise Against Hunger bolsters agricultural production and incomes through programs promoting improved agricultural methods, business skills, and market access. With training and access to quality seeds and fertilizers, farmers can increase production and harvest a variety of nutritious crops. By supporting the establishment of fish and livestock production, we also provide pathways to diversifying diets and improving nutritional outcomes.

Nicole E. French, Manalapan, New Jersey, the Mount Laurel branch manager of Preferred Home Health Care & Nursing Services (PHHC) with headquarters in Eatontown, has been appointed to the North Central New Jersey Market Board of the March of Dimes for a three-year term.

The March of Dimes (MOD) is a nonprofit organization that funds research, education, and programs to improve the health of mothers and babies, and works to end premature birth, birth defects, and infant mortality.

French will serve as the North Central New Jersey Market chairwoman of the March of Dimes and be responsible to the national Board of Trustees.

She will also represent the March of Dimes at official functions and in the community at large, among other responsibilities.

French said, “This is an exciting time within the MOD because its mission has evolved from eradicating polio to the fight against prematurity and improving infant mortality, the challenge of today. I am looking forward to supporting this mission through initiatives, such as the ‘Healthy Babies are Worth the Wait’ campaign and ‘Prematurity Awareness Month,’ which raise awareness and provide education about the risk of prematurity.”

Before joining PHHC, French worked for 15 years in the financial industry at Goldman Sachs & Co. and Citigroup Inc., specializing in financial planning and analysis, and corporate strategy. As regional director of Acelleron Medical Products, the durable medical equipment (DME) division of PHHC, French was responsible for the maternal health platform in New Jersey and Pennsylvania, promoting the new maternal benefits within the Affordable Care Act.

The South Jersey Culture & History Center at Stockton University has released of its latest publication, “Burlington Biographies: A History of Burlington, New Jersey told through the Lives and Times of its People,” by Robert L. Thompson. This 558-page hardbound book takes a fresh look at many aspects of the city’s rich heritage and longstanding lore through a unique approach to writing local history.

The chapters in this work sometimes strengthen well-known historical accounts, but the text just as easily topples a number of commonly held myths extending back a century or more.

The book will delight, entertain, and intrigue both the reader who possesses some knowledge of Burlington and its story and the neophyte who seeks to learn more about a community that intrepid Quaker founders settled in the second half of the 17th century.

For those people with a penchant for topical history, many issues are addressed in the pages of this work: African American history, the American War for Independence, architecture, artisanal work, city planning, immigration, merchants and prior local historians, among others.

The biographical essays that comprise this book will often take a reader far afield from where they begin, but always with the purpose of educating them about facets of Burlington’s historical past, before returning the reader to the original theme. So, for those individuals possessing any interest in the City of Burlington’s history, we invite them to find a comfortable chair and prepare themselves to be immersed in the Burlington of yesteryear

The book contains copious citations with notes appearing at the end of each chapter for ease of access. Two appendices at the back of the book document those people responsible for the City of Burlington’s built environment. The book also contains a comprehensive index.          

Robert L. Thompson
Robert L. Thompson

Thompson began writing his history about 25 years ago while an employee of the city.  He contributed articles to the “Burlington Story,” a local history pamphlet published by Dr. Henry Bisbee, Thompson’s mentor.  These articles, updated and augmented, form the basis for much of the work that followed.  Thompson is also a contributing author to the “History of Gloucester Township, New Jersey.” He also served as director of the Main Street Burlington initiative, before moving to a position as the City of Camden’s historic preservation specialist.

The book can be purchased from Second Time Books, 114 Creek Road, Mount Laurel, N.J. 08054; phone: (856) 234-9335. It can also be ordered directly from: South Jersey Culture & History Center, School of Arts & Humanities/Stockton University, 101 Vera King Farris Drive, Galloway, NJ 08205-9441; phone: (609) 652-4419.

New Jersey Secretary of Agriculture Douglas H. Fisher today urged farmers and other pesticide applicators to participate in the 2016 plastic pesticide container recycling program.  There are five sites around the state that accept the triple-washed containers from now through November.  There is no cost for the program.

New Jersey has had a plastic pesticide container recycling program for the last 20 years, with the Department of Agriculture leading the initiative since 2002.  The program is open to all New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection-(DEP)-licensed pesticide applicators.  The DEP issues participants one-core credit toward their NJDEP pesticide license.

“Participation in the plastic pesticide container recycling program keeps these plastics out of landfills and saves farmers and other applicators money,” said Secretary Fisher.

In 2015, more than 39,000 pounds were collected through this program.  Sites this year include:  Cumberland County Solid Waste Complex, Helena Chemical in Hammonton and Woodstown, Allied Recycling in Mount Holly and Rutgers Fruit and Ornamental Extension Center in Cream Ridge.

Non-refillable, high-density polyethylene # 2 (HDPE #2) containers used by agricultural, professional and commercial pesticide applicators will be accepted at the collection sites. Containers must be no larger than 55 gallons and properly rinsed.  For the detailed program guide, visit www.nj.gov/agriculture/divisions/anr/nrc/processingsteps.html.

The Department of Agriculture coordinates the recycling of many different plastic agricultural materials.  There are four sites statewide that accept nursery and greenhouse film year-round.  The Department also lists vendors who will accept for recycling: mulch film, irrigation drip tape, plastic nursery pots, drip trays and flats.
