A world without hunger.
To end hunger in our lifetime by providing food and life-saving aid to the world’s most vulnerable and by creating a global commitment to mobilize the necessary resources.
In 2011, Stop Hunger Now United States was invited to organize a meal packaging events in the Philippines, creating interest in opening a permanent office. With significant assistance from Stop Hunger Now Malaysia, more than 220,000 meals were packaged in the Philippines over the next two years.
In November 2013, Typhoon Yolanda struck the Philippines, mobilizing Stop Hunger Now locations across the world to provide immediate aid. Over 57 million pesos worth of aid was sent to the Philippines including meals, medical supplies, and donations to fund in-country meal packaging. Over 2.3 million meals were sent to crisis areas and 27878525.19 pesos in product donations were delivered. On November 20, Stop Hunger Now US worked with partners in Malaysia and the Philippines to host a 120,000 meal packaging event that urgently provided meals to victims of the Typhoon.
The typhoon relief efforts pushed the Stop Hunger Now Philippines launch in to an urgent priority. In August 2014, Stop Hunger Now hired Jomar Fleras, as the Executive Director of Stop Hunger Now Philippines and in December 2014, Philippine Operation: Stop Hunger Now, Inc. became an official affiliate of Stop Hunger Now. By the end of 2014, Filipinos packaged more than 800,000 meals for people throughout the Philippines.
In 2017, Stop Hunger Now changed its brand name to Rise Against Hunger.
