Thank you for your support to our hunger action initiatives. While our food assistance program meets immediate food needs for those facing food crisis, our community empowerment projects help food insecure communities and groups achieve sustainable food & nutrition security.
More than 60% of our packaged, nutritious fortified meals support children and youth programs both as mid-day meals as well as for regular consumption at home/residential care programs. The micronutrients and minerals in the meals aid in improving nutritional status of children, terminally ill patients, pregnant & nursing mothers, elderly and other such groups. During emergencies, Rise Against Hunger India meals have been very helpful to people facing food scarcity. For example, our COVID relief assistance in both the Waves has reached to more than 700,000 people spread across 18 States.
Between 2015 and 2020, over 2.2 million lives have been nourished with about 17 million meals (of which more than 6 million meals have been served as emergency relief). Under the Community Empowerment Program, multiple projects on agriculture, vegetable production, millet processing & marketing, food preservation have helped thousands of small farmers and landless households in rural poverty pockets in the country.
Your generous donation will help us reach more people through our meal distribution and community empowerment projects. We thank you again for your valuable donation!
