According to data gathered by the World Food Programme, hunger is the world's number-one health risk, killing more people every year than AIDS, malaria, and tuberculosis combined. Stop Hunger Now distributes food and other life-saving aid to provide hunger relief to developing countries around the world.

Stop Hunger Now’s meal-packaging program provides volunteers the opportunity to package high protein, dehydrated meals for use in crisis situations, school feeding programs, and orphanages around the world. During a meal-packaging event, 40–50 volunteers can package 10,000 meals in two hours. 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. The partner organizations have noticed increased enrollment in schools that receive these meals, resulting in more children who receive a quality education in addition to a healthful meal.

Join G-Team and donate $8 to help provide nutritious, protein-filled meals for children in developing countries. If G-Team members raise $280, then Stop Hunger Now Charlotte can prepare 1,120 emergency relief meals for a community overseas. Each additional $8 raised will fund another 32 emergency relief meals. G-Team members can also redeem their vouchers to learn more about volunteering for the packing event.
