Who We Are

Since we were founded in 1998, we have provided over 180 million meals in 65 countries.This year, we will package 45 million meals, and ship over $9 million in donated aid, mainly vitamins and medical supplies.

Based in Raleigh, N.C., we operate meal-packaging programs at 20 cities in the U.S. and in South Africa, Malaysia, India, Italy and the Philippines.

We have engaged over 500,000 corporate, student, civic and faith-based volunteers in meal-packaging. In just under two hours, a group of 30 to 40 volunteers can package 10,000 nutrient-rich meals for the undernourished globally. We also educate volunteers about hunger and inspire them to help end it.

What We Do

Rise Against Hunger is driven by the vision of a world without hunger. Our mission is to end hunger in our lifetime by providing food and life changing aid to the world’s most vulnerable and creating a global commitment to mobilize the necessary resources.
