Rise Against Hunger  (EIN 161541024)

Briefly describe your mission.

Rise Against Hunger is a growing a global movement to end hunger by empowering communities, nourishing lives, and responding to emergencies.

 

Who does your agency help?

Impacting remote, last-mile communities within hunger pockets can feel daunting. With your help, we can continue to step into these grassroots communities with hope and help.

 

Why should a City of Houston employee give to your organization?

We are nourishing lives through safety nets, responding to emergencies with crisis relief, empowering communities through agriculture and income-generating initiatives, and growing the movement by building momentum and action for ending hunger.

 

What is something unique about your agency?

We target remote, last-mile communities within hunger pockets designated “serious” or higher on the Global Hunger Index, which are the hardest places to reach and are often difficult to access, lack communication and have poor infrastructure. With the support of our global impact partners, we practice locally-led development by providing expertise vital to empower local communities and providing meals through local schools to incentive attendance and enable kids to obtain an education. Our work starts with a meal. 

 

Who should City employees contact if they want more information?
