Make 2024 THE Year You Help End Hunger

By Hannah Payne on January 3, 2024

A new year is here and, for many of us, that also means it is time for New Year’s resolutions. Many popular resolutions are about improving your own life — like starting a new exercise routine, eating a more nutritious diet, creating an improved work-life balance, or lowering your average screen time. These are definitely worthwhile resolutions. We should always do what we can to improve our own lives and be happy. 

But what about resolving to change the lives of others, too? When you add “help end hunger” to your 2024 New Year’s resolutions, you will do just that! You will help to nourish lives, support education and empower communities around the world. 

It isn’t too late to resolve to help end hunger in 2024! Here are five things you can do to carry out that resolution this year and make a difference in the lives of people globally: 

Host a Rise Against Hunger Experience meal packaging event. 

Did you know the nutritious meals we distribute to communities around the world are packaged by volunteers like you? To have a hands-on impact, host a Rise Against Hunger Experience meal packaging event with your business, church, school, civic group, or friends and family! Your group will package meals consisting of rice, soy, dehydrated vegetables and vitamins into bags. The meals you package will then be distributed to people facing hunger in countries across the globe. 

Want to host a meal packaging event? Fill out the form here!

Donate to support the work to end hunger. 

A one-time or recurring donation is a simple way to have an immediate impact! Your support will help Rise Against Hunger provide food and aid to children and families in need. Donate today to nourish lives and support education and health for people around the world. 

Volunteer at an upcoming event in your community. 

In addition to hosting a meal packaging event, there are many other opportunities throughout the year to join Rise Against Hunger in the movement to end global hunger. There are a variety of local events hosted throughout the year. Check out our Join an Event page to see how you can volunteer at an upcoming event in your area!

And if there isn’t an upcoming community event that’s the right fit for you, we also have opportunities at our locations across the U.S. for volunteers to help with event planning, organizing and stocking supplies, and promoting meal packaging events. Submit a volunteer form here if interested and we’ll be in touch!
