to Rise Against Hunger
We’re on the road to end hunger, aligned with the United Nations Sustainable Goal #2 of Zero Hunger.
Pathways to End Hunger
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. Targeting remote, last-mile communities within hunger pockets worldwide, we work through local leaders to build resilience, self-sufficiency, and empowerment.
While long-term food security projects take root, communities facing hunger still need to meet their basic needs today. We provide nutritional support through nutritious Rise Against Hunger meals and local regional procurement, which procures foods locally, to meet community needs. These safety net programs not only provide nourishment, but also support education, skills training, and health services that support the difficult journey out of poverty. As communities continue to experience a lack of access to food, we are working to expand our efforts to consistently provide nutritious food through educational settings to over 6 million people by 2025.

RESPONDING TO EMERGENCIES
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 food and other assistance is efficiently and effectively deployed to and received by communities when it is needed most. 5 million people are projected to receive support through our rapid response in protracted crises and sudden onset disasters within the next several years.

Agriculture and Income-Generating Initiatives
Through locally led agriculture and income-generating programs, we bolster crop production and incomes by 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 nutrition-sensitive crops. By supporting fish and livestock production, we provide pathways to diversifying diets and improving nutritional outcomes. Through income-generating activities, we help individuals increase their earning potential and consistent access to food. Within three years, we are aiming for hundreds of thousands of households affected by food insecurity to have the knowledge, skills, and assets necessary to ensure their food and nutrition security.

Momentum and Action for Ending Hunger
Rise Against Hunger recognizes that hunger will not end without creating a global movement. We engage hundreds of thousands of volunteers and advocates each year to build awareness and activation. Over the next several years, we want to engage over 2 million donors, fans and influencers to make a difference through our various opportunities, including meal packaging, virtual experiences, digital and social engagement, and more.
