Rise Against Hunger (RAH) is driven by a mission to achieve global food security in line with United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goal 2: End hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition, and promote sustainable agriculture. While communities work toward a future in which they can thrive, vulnerable families and individuals around the globe still have basic, immediate needs.

That’s why RAH supports safety net programs that provide nourishment, as well as additional skills training or services that support the difficult journey out of poverty. Through the Nourishing Lives (NL) program, RAH provides fortified rice-soy meals packaged by volunteer groups around the world to address nutritional insecurity challenges such as chronic undernourishment.

Rise Against Hunger provides 40-foot shipping containers of meals to meal distribution partners around the world.

Eligibility Requirements

  • Mission: Consideration is given to how closely the proposed program matches RAH’s mission and vision, as well as how the food will leverage further development in the program(s). They give preference to programs that are designed to bring about a positive economic impact over time, such as programming that supports school feeding, child and youth development, medical assistance, maternal/child health, vocational training, and orphanages.
  • Accountability: All candidate organizations will be reviewed to ensure that they are honest, responsive and reliable. The partner must be established with the ability, expertise and resources to properly handle a container shipment and provide quarterly data and reports on programs, inventory and use of donation. Donated meals are to be used to promote development and provide for immediate food needs, not to support political or theological agendas. Efforts are made to ensure that assistance is not being provided to or used to support any oppressive, destructive, or exploitative group(s) or individual(s).
  • Logistics: Meal distribution partners must have the ability to pay for the full cost of shipping and customs clearance of all requested containers. In addition, each partner must have experience, knowledge and the ability to guide each shipment through customs and safely to its final destination in a reasonable amount of time. Please refer to Appendix 3 for information regarding weights and quantities.
  • Storage: The partner also needs to have the ability to store and secure a minimum of 20 pallets of meals. Each pallet is approximately 4ft by 4ft with a height of 7 feet and weighs 2,185 lbs. Storage must protect the meals from water, pests and theft. The meals will need to be secured during distribution as well.
  • Distribution: The partner program(s) must maintain control of the donated food upon receipt, through storage and distribution. Inventory controls must be demonstrated from the point of receipt in-country to the point of use. Any loss of control could cause the meals to be sold in local markets, which is a breach of RAH’s policy. Partners are expected to maintain documentation of meal distribution and are encouraged to use tools developed by RAH, which will also aid in quarterly reporting.
  • Need: Level of need in the country, region and individual program(s). As referenced on page 1 of this application, RAH works to align with Sustainable Development Goal 2. To ensure they are working towards this goal, they look to invest the resources in areas with the most need. From 2019-2021, RAH’s key areas of geographic focus will be Sub-Saharan Africa, South Asia, Haiti, and the Philippines. Selection preference will be given to applications that work within these geographic focus areas.
