Rise Against Hunger

Rise Against Hunger Rise Against Hunger is an international hunger relief organization that coordinates the distribution of food and other transformational assistance around the world.
(61)

Rise Against Hunger is driven by a vision of a world without hunger and a mission to end hunger in our lifetime by providing food and life-saving aid to the world's most vulnerable and by creating a global commitment to mobilize the necessary resources. Rise Against Hunger created its meal packaging program in 2005. The program perfected the assembly process that combines rice, soy, dehydrated vegetables and 23 essential vitamins and minerals into meal packets. The food stores easily, has a shelf-life of two years and transports quickly. Rise Against Hunger works with international partners that ship and distribute the meals in-country. Due to the ease of assembly and transport, meals can be shipped to areas in crisis. Our Combined Federal Campaign number is #81646.

The COVID-19 pandemic has severely affected the nutritional intake of adolescent girls and women, who typically eat last, and least, in their family. The existing challenging gender norms are further deepened by the lack of access to basic health and nutrition services like iron-folic acid and calcium supplementation, antenatal and postnatal checkups, and sexual and reproductive health services. The impact of malnutrition from the COVID-19 pandemic will have a lasting effect on women and adolescent girls, both of whom have unique and increased micronutrient requirements.
