The Hunger Project

Of the 821 million people suffering from chronic hunger, 98 percent live in the developing world, and the only way for people to move beyond chronic hunger is to employ sustainable methods based on self-reliance. The Hunger Project works to empower rural communities in 12,000 villages across Africa, South Asia and Latin America with the skills, knowledge and resources they need to break the hunger cycle. Among other methods, The Hunger Project provides the tools and training to increase farm production at the local level, empowers partners to create, stock and manage their own food banks, and facilitates clusters of rural villages as they develop sustainable, self-reliant, hunger-free communities.
