About RISE AGAINST HUNGER

Location:

5701 Fortune Circle South, Suites M-N, Indianapolis, IN 46241, US

Mission Statement

To help end hunger in our lifetime by providing food and life-saving aid to the world's most vulnerable and by creating a global commitment to mobilize the necessary resources.

Description

Rise Against Hunger is an international hunger relief agency that has been fulfilling its commitment to end hunger for more than 15 years. Since 1998, the organization has coordinated the distribution of food and other lifesaving aid to children and families in countries all over the world.

Rise Against Hunger created its meal packaging program, in 2005. The program perfected the assembly process that combines rice, soy, dehydrated vegetables and a flavoring mix including 23 essential vitamins and minerals into small meal packets. Each meal costs only 29 cents. The food has a shelf-life of two years and transports quickly. Rise Against Hunger works with international partners that ship and distribute the meals in-country.

The packaging operation is mobile to wherever volunteers are located, and can accommodate as few as 25 and as many as 500 volunteers at a time. One SHN packaging event can result in the packaging of more than 1,000,000 meals.

Rise Against Hunger provides over 70% of its meals to support transformational development programs such as school feeding programs, vocational training programs, early childhood development programs, orphanages, and medical clinics. Working with these programs helps enhance lives by giving beneficiaries the opportunity to break the cycle of poverty through education, skills development, and health care while also receiving much needed nutrition.
