Stop Hunger Now has received footage from our partner LeSEA Global of our meals being distributed, along with other aid, in the Philippines. Thank you to all of our volunteers and our partners for responding to Typhoon Haiyan immediately and effectively!
Stop Hunger Now has been fulfilling its commitment to end hunger across the globe for more than 14 years. Established in 1998, Stop Hunger Now coordinates the distribution of food and other life-saving aid to crisis-burdened areas around the world. This is accomplished through popular community-supported meal packaging programs that often are part of corporate responsibility or volunteer service projects.
What distinguishes Stop Hunger Now from other aid/relief organizations that are also supplying food and in-kind aid is the focus on engaging volunteers in a hands-on activity to produce meals that are used strategically to support development programs, while at the same time fostering the growth of a movement to end hunger by educating those volunteers about the need and giving them an opportunity to take action.
Stop Hunger Now distributes its meals through feeding programs operated by partner organizations in developing countries which promote education, encourage children to attend school, improve the health and nutrition of students, address gender inequalities, spur economic growth, combat child labor, and create a platform for tackling global issues. In addition to supporting school feeding programs, Stop Hunger Now also provides meals in response to crisis relief.
By educating meal-packaging volunteers about the impact of Stop Hunger Now meals and its partners’ programs on children’s health and academic performance, we have the opportunity to educate and motivate thousands of people about the issue of hunger and what can be done to eliminate this solvable problem.
