Mission Statement

Working Together To End World Hunger

Established in 1998, Stop Hunger Now is a 501 (c) 3 non-governmental relief organization that coordinates food and aid projects across the globe. Our mission is to provide food and life-saving aid to the world's most destitute and hungry in the most efficient, effective and sustainable manner.

Description

Stop Hunger Now is a Raleigh-based international hunger relief agency that has been fulfilling its commitment to end hunger for over 10 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.

Stop Hunger Now created its meal packaging program, Operation Sharehouse, in 2005. The program perfected the assembly process that combines rice, soy, dehydrated vegetables and a flavoring mix including 21 essential vitamins and minerals into small meal packets. Each meal costs only 25 cents. The food stores easily, has a shelf-life of five years and transports quickly.

Stop Hunger Now works with international partners that ship and distribute the meals in-country. The majority of Stop Hunger Now's meals supply school lunch programs. Due to the ease of assembly and transport, meals can be shipped to areas in crisis.

This process for distribution, through school feeding programs in hunger-stricken regions, is seen as a practical means to end hunger.
