The pressure of food insecurity
Your donation of 1,000 pounds of rice and beans helps fund our food assistance programs while fighting the negative impact of food insecurity on impoverished communities. Your gift goes directly to a family in need. It provides a reprieve from participating in unsafe detrimental activities such as rummaging in trash dumps.
A staple food to fight hunger
Rice and beans are staple foods in many countries we serve. The grain and legume combination provides several essential nutrients. For example, a serving contains 279 calories, 7.2 grams of fat, 11 grams of protein, and 43 grams of carbohydrates. Every year we provide over 80 million meals to families in need.
Our assistance programs encompass various areas, including education, clean water, health, and micro-enterprise, with food assistance being one of the key pillars. Gifts that fund our food assistance program help rebuild impoverished communities and place them on a sustainable path. They are based on simple cost-effective ideas that make a difference on the ground thanks to our donors and partners.
