About us

The Hunger Project’s vision

A world where every woman, man and child leads a healthy, fulfilling life of self-reliance and dignity.

The Hunger Project’s mission

To end hunger and poverty by pioneering sustainable, grassroots, women-centred strategies and advocating for their widespread adoption in countries throughout the world.

What we believe

We know it’s possible for hunger to end, and that our generation has the power to end it once and for all. In our experience, people who live in hunger are not the problem – they are the solution. We don’t see a billion mouths to feed, we see a billion human beings who are enterprising and resilient. The work, therefore, is to unlock their capacity, creativity and leadership so they can end their own hunger. That’s what we do.

The Hunger Project empowers women and men living in rural villages in Africa, India, Bangladesh and Latin America to end their own hunger. We reach 16 million people who are transforming themselves, their families and their communities, and are bringing about the end of hunger.

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.
