Rise Against Hunger
Stop Hunger Now was established in 1998 and renamed Rise Against Hunger in 2017. The organization is driven by the 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. Stop Hunger Now’s meal packaging program began in December 2005. More than 550,000 volunteer hours have been donated to the program since its inception.
