How we work

Nourishing lives

Our organization’s approach to ending hunger centers on mobilizing a global network of hunger champions. Rise Against Hunger India meal packaging volunteers produce millions of nutritious meals annually that help feed vulnerable groups served by NGOs and community partners. Through our thorough monitoring and evaluation process, we ensure the meals distributed by those partners are effectively used as a tool to change lives by promoting education, improving students’ health and nutrition, addressing gender inequalities, stimulating economic growth and fighting child labor.


Empowering Communities

Our second important approach to eradicating hunger centers around grassroots community empowerment. Rise Against Hunger India bolsters agricultural production and incomes through programs promoting improved agricultural methods, business skills, and market access. With training and access to quality seeds and fertilizers, farmers can increase production and harvest a variety of nutritious crops. This also entails encouraging farmers to become resilient to climate change issues by adapting climate smart agriculture and other adaptive farming practices. By supporting the establishment and augmentation of fish and livestock production, we also provide pathways to diversifying diets and improving nutritional outcomes.


Responding to Emergencies

Another core focus of Rise Against Hunger India is responding to crises–both natural and man-made. From droughts to floods, or during pandemic situations such as COVID-19, in conflict zones and transitioning political situations, food is often the most immediate need. When everyday access to food, wages, and market systems are destroyed in the wake of emergencies, Rise Against Hunger India works directly as well as through its field teams as well as its network of grassroots partners active on the ground to address these needs. We strive to ensure aid is efficiently and effectively deployed to and received by communities when it is needed most.


Growing the Movement

Regardless of your location, age, schedule or resources, we believe anyone from anywhere can take action and make a positive difference in the fight against hunger. Even seemingly small contributions can add up to a BIG impact. No single agency or government can end hunger alone, and it will take everyone to make this a movement.
