We Must Act differently to end hunger

When we come together, we have power. Partnering with God to end hunger requires us to organize ourselves for action. When we come together as churches, campus groups, community organizations, or individuals of good will, collective action makes a bigger impact than individual protest. Because we live in a democracy, Congress listens when people speak up, and we can be heard better when we speak together. Advocacy to end hunger — involving educating, organizing, and mobilizing — starts with us in our communities..

People experiencing malnutrition and poverty are especially vulnerable to chronic health conditions and infectious diseases. In the 2020 Hunger Report, we focus on the importance of good nutrition and the systems needed to deliver it sustainably and equitably. This topic was crucial before the COVID-19 crisis, and the pandemic underscores the main messages of the report

Other concerned individuals

Individuals don’t have to be part of an organized group to work toward ending hunger. Many people volunteer. Giving your time is a valuable way of contributing toward the end of hunger. You can volunteer at a soup kitchen or during election time for a candidate who pledges to end hunger.
