Relive “Rise Against Hunger Goes Live" and Catch Up on What You Missed!

By Hannah Payne on June 9, 2020

Can you believe it’s already been a month since Rise Against Hunger Goes Live?! The five-hour broadcast, full of informative and fun segments, was a live fundraising event we held on #GivingTuesdayNow, May 5, to help Rise Against Hunger continue our commitment to serve 2 million beneficiaries around the world. If you were unable to tune in that day (or, like us, are ready to relive it!), we’ve compiled a list of some of our favorite segments. Check them out below!
Interview with our Chief Impact Officer
In conversation with Dominic Alexander, a Rise Against Hunger Regional Community Engagement Manager, Edna Ogwangi, our Chief Impact Officer, discusses the organization’s 2019 Global Impact results, our COVID-19 Relief & Resilience Plan and more.
Cooking in Quarantine
Using Rise Against Hunger meal bags as their main ingredients, staff members Naomi Brisard and Chelsie Kolberg show us how to make fun and nutritious meals right from home!
Meet our Founder: Ray Buchanan
Ray Buchanan founded Rise Against Hunger (formerly Stop Hunger Now) in 1998. Dominic Alexander, a longtime employee who has worked with Ray for over a decade, interviews Ray in this segment about the organization’s roots in crisis response.
Rise Against Hunger International Efforts
Did you know Rise Against Hunger has international locations in Italy, South Africa, India, Malaysia and the Philippines? Hear the leaders of our international locations discuss their hunger relief efforts in the regions they serve during the COVID-19 pandemic.

You can also watch interviews with some of our impact partners, including Children of Vietnam, Hearts and Hands for Haiti, ADRA Zimbabwe, Muslim Aid and Hope For Venezuelan Refugees Project, to learn more about the work they’re doing and our partnerships.

To everyone who tuned in live on May 5, thank you so much! If you’d like to help us meet the critical needs of those in crisis around the globe, you can donate today!
