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 by building resilience, self-sufficiency and empowerment in communities worldwide.
While long-term food security projects take root, communities facing hunger still need to meet their basic needs today. We support safety net programs that provide nourishment as well as education, skills training or 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
We bolster 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 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.
