6 Ways to Give Back and Help End Hunger in 2020

By Hannah Payne on November 25, 2020

We’ve almost reached the end of 2020, and this unprecedented year has been one of many changes and challenges for people across the globe, including those facing hunger. This holiday season, you can give back and help respond to those challenges and changes. As Rise Against Hunger works to meet the increased need during this crisis and support the 2 million people we serve, we’ve put together a list of ways you can help!
Shop Hope with the Meet the Need Market.
For the holidays, Rise Against Hunger has launched a virtual Meet the Need Market where you can shop to donate a gift that will have a lasting impact in the lives of people in countries across the globe. From meals to medicine, seeds to soap and more, the Market features 16 essential items that will empower at-risk families and communities worldwide. When you shop the Market, your gift could mean more to a family, or community, than any gift ever has before. You can also donate a gift in honor of someone special, and then sharing the donation with that person is a great, meaningful gift idea for the holiday season!
Check out Amazon Smile.
Planning to do more of your holiday shopping online this year? You’re not alone – and you can give back while doing so! When you shop directly through the Amazon Smile website, 0.5% of the price of your eligible purchases will be donated to a charity of your choice. Go to www.smile.amazon.com and search for Rise Against Hunger to add us as your selected non-profit. Now you’re all set to make an impact while you shop!

Take the Journey to Serve: Tanzania Virtual Impact Trip.
Join us on a virtual impact trip with Journey to Serve: Tanzania! This immersive, interactive experience transports you virtually to Tanzania to learn about the country’s culture and hear how Rise Against Hunger and Global Volunteers are addressing food insecurity in communities there. Your Journey to Serve: Tanzania ticket purchase has a huge impact, providing meals to a student for an entire year! A ticket makes a fantastic, impactful gift for your friends and family, too.

Host A Rise Against Hunger Experience.
You can help support children and families who are counting on us now more than ever by hosting a Rise Against Hunger Experience meal packaging event! Our new modified meal packaging method closely follows CDC guidelines and local regulations. The safety of our volunteers, staff and people we serve is of utmost importance, and our adjusted setup enables volunteers to have a hands-on impact while also taking necessary safety precautions.
Virtually Volunteer.
If you’re unable to host an in-person Rise Against Hunger Experience, we also have a myriad of virtual engagement opportunities that enable you to get involved and have an impact from wherever you are! There are opportunities perfect for individuals and groups. Check them out to take the first step toward virtual volunteering.

Donating is another great way to give back, have an impact and support Rise Against Hunger’s mission in 2020 and beyond. Your donation enables Rise Against Hunger to continue our commitment to the 2 million people we serve worldwide.

This year has been challenging, and your support means so much to Rise Against Hunger and the people we serve. Thank you for being part of the movement to end global hunger!
