Russia’s invasion of Ukraine is going to have a negative impact on global food systems and world hunger. We need to take collective action now to mitigate the effects of this conflict.

With a global food system in crisis, now is the time to invest in sustainable solutions to hunger.

Hunger is about more than food.
It’s about people.

Top-down, aid-driven charity models fail to create lasting change in the lives of those in need. To achieve a sustainable solution to hunger, we need to flip that model on its head, and afford those living in hunger access to the education and tools needed to end hunger for good.

Together, we can end hunger.

Whether you’re able to invest time or money – everyone has a role to play in the sustainable end of world hunger. When one person is trained, the ripple effect it catalyzes is far-reaching: to their children and spouses, to their neighbors and to the wider community. Real progress is made when we all work together.

Make change happen. Invest in people.
