The Issue: World Hunger and Malnutrition

Hunger is the No. 1 health-risk worldwide, killing more people every year than AIDS, malaria, and tuberculosis combined, according to data gathered by the World Food Programme.

The Campaign: Prepare Emergency Relief Meals

If this Grassroots campaign raises $280, then Stop Hunger Now Phoenix can prepare 1,120 emergency relief meals for a community overseas. Each meal contains rice, soy, dehydrated vegetables, and a vitamin pack, and forms a healthful rice-soy casserole when cooked in boiling water. Individual bags containing six meals will go to partner organizations that operate school feeding programs in developing countries.

Each additional $8 raised will fund another 32 emergency relief meals, and those who donate to today's campaign can also redeem their vouchers to learn more about volunteering for the packing event.

You can follow the progress of this and other Grassroots campaigns at the Groupon Grassroots website.

Stop Hunger Now

Stop Hunger Now distributes food and other life-saving aid to provide hunger relief to developing countries around the world. Through its meal-packaging program, volunteers package high protein, dehydrated meals for use in crisis situations, school feeding programs, and orphanages around the world. Its partner organizations note increased enrollment in schools that receive these meals, ensuring that more children receive a quality education in addition to a healthful meal. Stop Hunger Now hosts meal-packaging events to prep food for recipients, during which 40–50 volunteers can typically package 10,000 meals in two hours.
