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 programs that provide nourishment, healthcare training, drinking water facilities, training of caregivers and other services that support the difficult journey out of poverty.

Rise Against Hunger India meals are provided to schools, orphanages, elderly care homes, hospitals and centers treating patients recovering from TB, Cancer, HIV/AIDS etc. Meals distributed in hospitals and clinics may support patients’ nutritional needs and complement their treatments. For community empowerment programs, the provision of meals offsets productive time given by adult members for building community assets for common use (Meals4Development). Meals also act as a major safety net for people in crisis to cope with their daily survival needs before they start working to organize their livelihoods.

One in three people worldwide are adversely affected by vitamin and mineral deficiencies. Rise Against Hunger India meals, packaged by volunteers, are designed to provide a comprehensive array of micronutrients. Rise Against Hunger India meals include enriched rice, dal (legume) protein, dried vegetables and 20 essential vitamins and nutrients.
