About Rise Against Hunger

According to the Rise Against Hunger relief agency, a child dies every 6 seconds from not having enough to eat.  They are helping save lives by sending 20 million meals and other aid to 79 countries worldwide.  Rise Against Hunger has been fulfilling its commitment to end hunger since Ray Buchanan, a United Methodist minister, founded Stop Hunger Now in 1998.

They created its meal packaging program, in 2005 and have perfected the assembly process that combines dry foods and 21 essential vitamins and minerals into small meal packets.  The food stores easily, has a shelf-life of 2 years, only costs only 25 cents per packet.  They work with international partners that ship and distribute the meals in-country.

Another core focus of Rise Against Hunger is responding to crises–both natural and man-made. From droughts to floods, in conflict zones and transitioning political situations, food is often the most immediate need.
