#Brownbagit with Action Against Hunger

 

This fall, donate your lunch money and #brownbagit

For a world free from hunger

 

 

THE NEED: A WORLD FREE FROM HUNGER

Malnutrition is the single greatest threat to child survival. Every year, 3.1 million children die of malnutrition – a staggering 45% of all child deaths globally. That’s unacceptable.

 

THE IDEA: BE THE GENERATION THAT ENDS HUNGER

Did you know that hunger is completely preventable? The world has the knowledge, the ability, and the resources to help. All we need are people like you to help us keep up the fight against the root causes of hunger.

With your help, we can be the generation that ends hunger in our lifetime.

Learn more about our work and what we do.

 

JOIN THE MOVEMENT: #BROWNBAGIT

Pack a nutritious lunch this fall and donate the money you save so every kid around the world can access nutritious food.

For inspiration, check out the simple lunch recipes that we’ll share weekly from top chefs this fall. Your donation will help the communities we work with in nearly 50 countries feed their children healthy meals and stave off the causes of malnutrition.
