50 million meals (and counting!) DONATED.
Millions of lives impacted.
Rise Against Hunger is working to end hunger with Zambrero, the international Mexican-inspired restaurant franchise. Zambrero’s Plate 4 Plate initiative means they donate a meal for every burrito or bowl sold in their 200+ restaurant locations worldwide. In July 2021, Zambrero reached the milestone of 50 million meals donated, making a huge impact in addressing food insecurity across the globe.
The meals donated to Rise Against Hunger are then packaged by volunteers, shipped and distributed to last-mile, hunger-pocket communities in countries around the world. The meals provide crucial nutritional support to the people Rise Against Hunger serves.
Rise Against Hunger has partnered with Zambrero since 2014. In addition to meals donated through Plate 4 Plate, Zambrero has hosted 29 Rise Against Hunger Experience meal packaging events across 10 cities in Australia, packaging 1.9 million meals collectively. Zambrero has also traveled with us on impact trips to communities served in The Philippines, Vietnam and South Africa to enable their employees and customers to gain a deeper understanding of our shared mission and outcomes globally.
Zambrero is also already working toward donating 1 billion meals for people experiencing food insecurity.
