 World Hunger Is Increasing, Thanks to Wars and Climate Change

Despite efforts to end food shortages, a recent U.N. report shows that, after years of decline, hunger is on the rise again.

We don’t just ask why. We find solutions to hunger that transform and last. Our answer is to build power with grassroots initiatives that nourish people and enrich communities.

1,000 Days

We believe that all children deserve a healthy first 1,000 days and the opportunity to achieve their full potential.

The world is hungry, but the emptiness goes far beyond the table. The need is physical and spiritual. People hunger for opportunity, starve for resources, and have been stripped of value. These injustices keep us up at night.
