About us

The Hunger Project is a global not-for-profit, founded in 1977. We believe passionately that ending hunger is possible, and that our generation has the power to end it once and for all.

Our vision is a world without hunger.

Our mission is to facilitate individual and collective action to transform the systems of inequity that create hunger and cause it to persist.

We do this by pioneering sustainable, grassroots, women-centred strategies and advocating for their widespread adoption in countries throughout the world. We comprise of 13 Programme countries across rural Africa, South Asia and Latin America and 12 Partner countries.

The issues.
Unlike famines that receive emergency-aid, chronic hunger is a silent, invisible, day-after-day condition. Millions live with hunger and undernourishment because they simply cannot afford to buy enough food, cannot afford nutritious foods or cannot afford the farming supplies they need to grow enough good food of their own.

Our approach.
Top-down, aid-driven, ‘West knows best’ models fail to create sustainable, lasting change for communities living in hunger and poverty. At The Hunger Project we’re breaking the cycle of hunger and poverty, by flipping this model on its head. We believe hungry people themselves are the key to ending hunger and we have 40+ years of evidence to say this theory of change works.

Our impact.
In 2022, The Hunger Project’s work reached nearly 12 million people.

Our work in the UK
For us in the United Kingdom, we think there is more to life than just consuming. We are all connected, and honouring that connection through partnership makes life richer.

We all have a part to play in the end of hunger. Find yours by joining the movement of people rising up to end hunger by 2030.

A Day In Her Food

Can you live on limited ingredients and use her adaptable recipes to create nutritious meals for a week?

Take on the challenge today!

A Day In Her Food is an experiential food campaign from The Hunger Project UK. It raises awareness about malnutrition and hunger by celebrating women and mothers’ adaptability in ensuring their loved ones have nutritious meals despite having limited access to food supplies. By fundraising through the A Day In Her Food Challenge you could be supporting communities in diversifying their nutritional intake.

The A Day In Her Food Challenge can last up to a week, where as an individual or team, you are challenged to create nutritious meals across a week using 3-6 ingredients per day. You can either choose your ingredients from our programme country menus or from your mamma’s kitchen. Before you start the challenge, speak to the women and mothers in your life to collect as much information as you can on their techniques and adaptable recipes. Don’t forget to record your recipes so you can share it with others around the world.

By taking on the challenge, you will be raising awareness about the impacts of malnutrition, promoting healthy eating, managing your food waste and celebrating the women in your lives who are already change makers.
