About the Organization
Vision and Mission
**MEMBERS ONLY**SIGN UP NOW***. is driven by the vision of a world without hunger. Their mission is to end hunger in our lifetime by providing food and life-changing aid to the world’s most vulnerable and creating a global commitment to mobilize the necessary resources.
Nourishing Lives
: **MEMBERS ONLY**SIGN UP NOW***.’s approach to ending hunger centers on mobilizing a global network of hunger champions. Through the organization’s meal packaging program, volunteers produce millions of nutritious meals annually that are distributed to partners in countries around the world. Those partners are best able to address the causes and effects of hunger based on their local presence and expertise. Through the organization’s thorough monitoring and evaluation process, **MEMBERS ONLY**SIGN UP NOW***. ensures the meals distributed by those partners are used as a tool to change lives by promoting education, improving students’ health and nutrition, addressing gender inequalities, stimulating economic growth and avoiding child labor.
Crisis Response
: Another core focus of **MEMBERS ONLY**SIGN UP NOW***. is responding to crises – both natural and man-made.

They strive to ensure aid is efficiently and effectively deployed to and received by communities when it is needed most.
Sustainable Community Development
: The organization’s third approach to eradicating hunger centers around grassroots community empowerment. **MEMBERS ONLY**SIGN UP NOW***. bolsters 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 the establishment of fish and livestock production, they also provide pathways to diversifying diets and improving nutritional outcomes.
: Their fourth approach is to engage Hunger Champions in supporting laws, policies and systems that will help end hunger by 2030. **MEMBERS ONLY**SIGN UP NOW***.’s Public Policy Agenda aligns with U.N. Sustainable Development Goal #2: Zero Hunger. Advocacy is a pillar of the organization’s Pathways to End Hunger and supports its long-standing commitment to grow the movement to end hunger.
