Rise Against Hunger
Rise Against Hunger is an international no profit organization 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 to end hunger. We’re on the road to end hunger by 2030, aligned with the United Nations Sustainable Goal #2 of Zero Hunger. 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. Since 2005, our volunteer groups have packaged over 500 million meals, and each year we engage hundreds of thousands of volunteers globally. We rely on groups of any size in locations across the world to package our meals. Those partners are best able to address the causes and effects of hunger based on their local presence and expertise. From the implementation of sustainable community development projects to our meal packaging program that harnesses the passion of local volunteers, we strive to make an impact on hunger by building resilience, self-sufficiency and empowerment in communities worldwide.
