We're Grateful for You This Thanksgiving!

This week, as we gather with friends and family and celebrate our many blessings, we’d like to take a moment and express how grateful we are for YOU, our volunteers and supporters around the globe.

Rise Against Hunger was founded by Ray Buchanan in 1998 in a small, donated office space with a vision to end hunger in this lifetime. We are so thankful that 20+ years later, millions of volunteers worldwide have shared Ray’s vision and have donated their time and resources to help make zero hunger a reality by packaging more than 500 million nutritious meals for those in need.

Ending hunger is challenging work, and work that we could not do alone. Rise Against Hunger is incredibly fortunate to have the countless hands of volunteers young and old pitching in day in and day out not only to package meals, but to raise their voices to spread the message that a world without hunger IS possible when we come together.

We hope you enjoy a relaxing Thanksgiving this week. On behalf of Rise Against Hunger and our beneficiaries worldwide, thank you for all that you do for those in need!
