Will You Join the Movement to End Hunger in 2023?

By Amanda Whitmyer on January 4, 2023

With a new year upon us, many of us are filling our plates with New Year’s resolutions that we hope will transform our lives and those around us. As we look to the future with optimism, there are more than 800 million people worldwide facing food insecurity, unsure of when they will receive a nourishing meal. In 2023, we invite you to join the movement to end hunger to provide hope and a resilient future for remote, last-mile communities.

Whether you’re an organization or an individual, here are four ways you can support Rise Against Hunger in fighting global hunger in celebration of our 25th anniversary.

Host a Rise Against Hunger Experience.

If you’re looking for a hands-on approach to ending hunger across the globe, a Rise Against Hunger Experience is the path for you. Whether you’re an individual, business, church, or school, your group will work together to package meals, including rice, soy, dehydrated vegetables and vitamins, scooped into bags. These packaged meals are shipped to international locations to support the most vulnerable populations and distributed by our global partners. 

Are inspired and ready to host an event? Fill out the form here, and we’ll be in touch!

Volunteer at an event near you.

Our volunteers are the heart of our mission to end hunger, and we could not send millions of meals around the globe each year without them. Whether you’re interested in supporting event planning, including organizing materials, ensuring supplies are stocked, or promoting meal packaging events, we have an opportunity near you. With locations across the U.S., our team looks forward to helping you find the volunteer role that fits your interests and needs.

Submit a volunteer form here, and our nearest team member will contact you soon.

Spread the word on social media.

Ending global hunger isn’t possible without creating a global movement. By engaging thousands of volunteers and advocates each year, we can build awareness and take action today to end hunger tomorrow. You can help spread the word by using #ItStartsWithAMeal on social media about the importance of ending food insecurity and how your friends, family and followers can grow the movement. Our goal is to engage over 2 million donors to make a difference by 2025.

It starts with a meal, and it starts with you. Join the movement on social to end hunger: Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn, and YouTube.

Donate to the mission of ending hunger.

Ready to make an immediate impact? You can make a one-time donation to support the greatest area of need or join Team Nourish with a monthly donation to end global hunger. Just $1 each day will nourish three children in a Rise Against Hunger school feeding program for one month — that’s incredible. You can also make an in-kind donation, which supports the fulfillment of our mission to end world hunger.
