Nourishing Lives

While communities work toward a future in which they can thrive, vulnerable families and individuals around the globe still have basic, immediate needs. That’s why Rise Against Hunger India supports safety net programs that provide nourishment, as well as additional skills training or services that support the difficult journey out of poverty.

Rise Against Hunger India meals are provided in schools to encourage increased enrollment and attendance. For adults in community empowerment programs, the provision of meals offsets productive time lost while attending training sessions. Meals distributed in hospitals and clinics may support patients’ nutritional needs and complement their treatments. Meals also act as a major safety net for people in crisis to cope with their daily survival needs before they are able to organize their livelihoods.

One in three people worldwide are adversely affected by vitamin and mineral deficiencies.

Rise Against Hunger India meals include enriched rice, dal (legume) protein, dried vegetables and 21 essential vitamins and nutrients.
