Help End World Hunger

Updated on December 18, 2013

Help End World Hunger

More than one billion people - approximately 1/6 of the world's population are hungry. And every day nearly 16,000 children die from hunger and related causes. We have the resources to feed the world. We just need the will. Learn about global hunger and what you can do to help.

All proceeds from this page are donated to A Day of Hope, a non-profit organization that provides food to need families in Stanislaus, California.

World Hunger Facts

  • 1.02 billion people in the world are hungry.

    UN Food and Agriculture Organization

  • 1 billion people in the world live on less than $1 a day.

    "World Development Indicators 2007." The World Bank.

  • 27 percent of children under 5 are moderately to severely underweight in the developing world.

    "State of the World's Children 2007."UNICEF.

  • Nearly one in three people die prematurely or have disabilities due to poor nutrition and calorie deficiencies.

    "Malnutrition." World Health Organization (WHO)

  • One in nearly seven people do not get enough food to be healthy, making hunger and malnutrition the number one risk to health worldwide.

    UN World Food Programme

The Cost to End World Hunger

It's less than 1%

The United Nations has estimated the cost of ending world hunger at about $195 billion a year. Twenty-two countries have pledged to donate this money by contributing 0.7% -- less than 1% -- of national income to international aid, but the goal has yet to be reached. Five countries have already met the goal, while others are on target to meet it in a few years. Some, including the U.S., are lagging. If you'd like to encourage US lawmakers to work harder to donate the necessary funds, visit this page at Poverty.com and print a letter that you can send to your congressional represenatives, or use the letter as an example for your customized letter.

Make Free Donations to End World Hunger

What if you could help end world hunger without spending any money or even leaving your house? Would you do it? If the answer if yes, then bookmark The Hunger Site.com and visit every day.

With a single click of the mouse, you can provide food for hungry people in the U.S. and around the world.

It's a simple way to make a big difference. So far, visitors to the site have helped provide more than 300 million cups of food to people around the world - all at no cost to the web visitors who click every day. Donations are paid for by advertisers who purchase small banner ads on the site, and 100% of the advertising fees go to nonprofit organizations working to end hunger. Currently, The Hunger Site's charitable partners are Mercy Corps and America's Second Harvest.

Funds are split between these organizations and go to the aid of hungry people in over 74 countries, including those in Africa, Asia, Eastern Europe, the Middle East, Latin America and North America.

So make a difference in the life of a hungry child or adult. Visit TheHungerSite.com and make your free donation.

Improve Your Vocabulary and End Global Hunger - for Free!

Visit FreeRice.com to Make Free Donations

FreeRice.com is a wonderful new site that can help end global hunger. Launched in October 2007, FreeRice.com is reminiscent of TheHungerSite in its ease of use and wonderful ability to impact the world. Like The Hunger Site, it allows you to make free advertiser-supported donations to the World Food Programme. All you have to do is sharpen your vocabulary.

The site asks users to play a multiple-choice word game to generate donations. For each word you get right, FreeRice.com will donate the equivalent of 10 grains of rice. The site shows you a word and then asks you to choose a synonym from a list of four others. The more you get right, the harder it gets.

In its first month, the site has already raised over 1 billion grains of rice for the UN World Food Programme. So surf on over to FreeRice.com, sharpen your vocabulary, and do a world of good for the hungry.

Help End World Hunger While You Shop, Search and Sing Along

Make free donations when you're online

NeoAid is a new philanthropic site that just launched in 2009. They're making it easy for people to donate money to good causes, including world hunger, simply by searching the web or performing other online tasks such as shopping or signing up for special offers.

NeoAid's homepage looks much like any typical search site, with a big search box in the middle of the page, but the results you get here will do more than just point you to the information you're seeking. They'll also generate money for charities, including the UN World Food Programme. In addition to generating donatoins through searching, users can also click on the Shop, Offers, or Free Software links to donate even more money to charity.

There area couple things I really ike about this site:

- They donate 90% of their net revenue (gross income minus running expenses) to charity.

- They started with a small number of charities. Some other charity search sites allow users to select almost any nonprofit organization they wish to support, but this usually means that each charity may only get a few dollars or even a few cents, so the effectiveness of the effort is minimized.

- The seven charities they're supporting cover a wide wide of issues and are all well-known, trusted organizations:

Poverty: : United Nations World Food Programme (WFP)

Animal Welfare: International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW)

Children: : UNICEF (United Nations Children's Fund)

Emergency Aid: : Direct Relief International

Environment: : WWF - World Wide Fund for Nature

Health: : City of Hope

Human Rights: : Amnesty International

The site has only launched recently, but if they become as successful as The Hunger Site or Free Rice, they could make a significant impact. Check out NeoAid.com.

Help End World Hunger for $1 - One Million Dollar PayPal Challenge to Support World Food Programme

The UN World Food Programme's FightHunger.org site is dedicated to ending child hunger by 2015. The One Million Dollar PayPal Challenge is asking one million people to each donate $1 - just one dollar! - to help reach their goal of $1 million to end child hunger. Watch this video or visit FightHunger.org/paypal to make a donation.

Hunger Education Links - Great sites to learn more and make a difference

World Hunger Video

Organizations that Want to End World Hunger - Nonprofits dedicated to ending world hunger

Nonprofit organizations who work to end hunger may provide short-term emergency food in cases of drought, civil unrest, or other emergency, or they may focus on development projects that break the cycle of poverty and help ensure long-term food supplies. These are just a few of the organizations focusing on solutions to global hunger.

This lens was nominated as one of the Best Charity Lens in the 2008 Giant Squid Awards.

Please note: Comments and links to hunger-related charities and lenses about other worthy organizations are welcome, but if you're a spammer, please don't ruin it for everyone else by adding a completely useless and unrelated link that is trying to make more money for you. If you do, I WILL delete it. So please play nice.

      [in reply to emokidd] Yes, there are some organizations that waste large portions of their revenue on administrative or other non-essential expenses, but I believe most charities are good, and there are more generous people than greedy people in this world. This lens offers ways people can help end world hunger without spending a penny, but for those who want to do more, Charity Navigator can help you evaluate the effectiveness of thousands of nonprofit organizations. Throwing your hands up and giving up because there might be some "ripoffs" and "greedy" people in the world is a surefire recipe for failure. We don't need to fail.

      But wait. Is monetary aid really helping countries in need? Or is it just continuing the cycle of poverty. Join the debate, should we continue to give aid those in need?

      I'm part of an organization who has raised over $1.5 million for humanitarian programs around the world.

      Our Total Package of Impact allocates sustained monthly provisions of the essentials of food and water, as well as education programs, and micro-loans for individuals to start small businesses, so creating self-sufficiency within communities.

      In our first year we helped sponsor the single largest food drop in US history and undertook the largest teacher training of its kind in African history. We support Women's Empowerment Centers with classes graduating in cosmetology and tailoring; orphanages, pre-schools and primary schools funded and built to educate the leaders of tomorrow and agricultural programs educating youth farmers on new ways of harvesting crops to produce products that deal with malnutrition both in the devolping and developed worlds.

      It is an irony that religion encourages people to have ever more children and does nothing about watching them die of hunger. That is where the biggest problem lies and until we stop dogma directing people's lives this situation will go on and get worse. Blessed by an angel and featured on Sprinkled with Stardust

      I am a european who came and stayed in Africa, familiar with the topic of this lense.

      After many years of living locally, I would say now that the best ways to eradicate hunger is to work on improving the quality of education and on developing the channels through wich information can be shared for free and made available for everyone.

      In this regard, I am suggesting that people involved in charity work could include in their programs Wikipedia too. Wikipedia is one organisation which can have a huge impact on improving social development worldwide. The organization only needs a very small fraction of the amounts donated yearly for charity as the greater part of it is developed by volunteers. The amount they need for costs that can not be avoided, they are giving back permanently and efficiently. All donations translate into amounts of information that never will lose validity or value and will stay in the public domain in an open content, to be shared with everybody, no matter social or geographical location. Humankind as a whole is benefiting.

      With the whole world to feed, I'm not sure one blessing is enough. Let me add mine for the April Fools Day Blessing Tour, too. I especially like that you have included the sites where you can give for free - for the cost of a few minutes of your time.

      It's sad to know that there's a lot of people who are hungry and dies because of hunger. What the authority should do is to help them to find food on their own. They must have job for them to buy food.

      The loss of human life due to hunger is as great as if an atomic bomb - similar to the one that destroyed Hiroshima during the Second World War - were to be dropped on a densely populated area every three days.

      The world produces 10 percent more food than is needed to feed everyone.

      Congress approved $162 billion for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan for fiscal 2009.

      The US bailed out Wall Street for more than $690 billion.

      Approximately $540 billion is spent by the US alone on global military and arms trade expenditures.

      The United States Department of Energy spends $23.4 billion yearly to develop and maintain nuclear warheads.

      In 2009 The U.S. Congress approved $44 billion of U.S. funds for Iraqi construction projects

      Where are our priorities?

I am currently involved in raising funds for a non profit that rescues young girls and turns them into women leaders through nutrition, health, education, and leadership training. Causes like this are what make life meaningful.

      @BoomerChild: The solution is in fact very similar to an aircraft carrier, but will earn money as well. If we grow our food on ships the size of the aircraft carriers in the deade zones of the sea we will stop the bulldozing of land - a football field every seven minutes- which we enjoy as natural, we will create tons of jobs, we can put a stop to the cruel and non-nutritious practice of factory-style animal farming, and the shadows we create in th ocean will help slow global warming. Hydroponic style water-to-the-roots systems can preserve water, and fully hydroponic system boats mostly made of plexiglass might be made to ensure we allow some sun to the dead zones -as much as is healthy; research needs done- Hydroponic Mid-Ocean Tomatoes

      Iâve just received some important news about the tax justice campaign that needs urgent action on behalf of the worldâs poor.

      Christian Aid has been campaigning for the G20 to keep its commitment to address tax dodging in poor countries, but I just heard that G20 development and finance ministers may backtrack on this commitment when they meet in Washington tomorrow.

      Such a loss of nerve would be inexcusable. Tax dodging by some unscrupulous multinational companies costs developing countries more than they receive in aid every year. Itâs one of the biggest single factors keeping poor people in poverty today.

      Help end tax dodging

      The G20 has the power to help end tax dodging and that means it has a responsibility to act. Itâs already recognised the link between tax justice and ending poverty. It has committed to help governments collect revenues to fund development. Meanwhile, French President Nicolas Sarkozy, who is hosting this yearâs G20 Heads of State meeting, has spoken strongly on the need to tackle tax secrecy.

      But words are easy. What people living in poverty need is action.

      Please send an urgent message to G20 ministers today and tell them there can be no backtracking on tax justice for the worldâs poor.

      @thinkingaloud lm: or the fact that I invented the inventiuon that cures world hunger and none of these orginizations want my invention to fix the problem. Ignore me like there is no tomorrow. Ow by the way my invention also gives free oil out enough to where no one has to pay for silly gas again. I have tried contacting the white house for the last year and a half. They suck. I went through three tumors and i have been working on my invention since highschool. If you want to help them all get Obama to look at my invention or convince the American people to force the price of patents to go down. I could have had this invention out last year. My machine cleans air and water and may be the first stepping stone to cures for the uncured. It worked on me no tumors since. I have contact NPR, the New York Times, and many senators.. Even the Alaskan senator. Well guess that's all i got to say. Remember the cure is here and it's been here for the last year and a half and every body who has starved is a result in our government ignoring me and skyrocketing the patent prices. Ow and if you think i should just give the invention out corp. America would steal it and charge you double. If you want it to be free we need to get Obama in our corner. Asking for any help saving your own kind. Really stressed about this. Johnmiceli2@gmail.com

      Great lens. You have inspired me to action. I am an author currently working on a story in which hunger plays a role and reading this today, I have decided to donate a small percent of the proceeds from book sales to an organization that helps hungry people. I am going to come back to this lens later (hopefully still today) to look at each organization you link to.

      I went to Dartmouth college, so I found your reference to Professor Meadows doubly interesting. By passing on her comments here, you play a role as an agent of change and making the world a better place.

      its hard to believe people starve everyday. we waste so much food here in the states and so many go without, seems very unfair how things are right now.

      I'm especially fond of organisations like Oxfam, which engage the people to stand up for themselves. Have been a fundraiser for Oxfam and WWF. Actually, even WWF helps combat hunger - to protect the environment, they teach people how to use the land (or sea/river) in a sustainable way.

      Result: both nature and people thrive!

      No one should go hungry. Having lived in Africa most of my life and worked in areas where people suffer constantly from extreme poverty I have seen how the generosity of people around the world makes a massive difference. If you have never personally experienced real hunger you cannot truly understand what it is like. This however should not stop people from giving.
