Rise Against Hunger

According to World Vision, 8.9% of the world’s population is currently suffering from chronic hunger, which equates to 690 million people, and that number is slowly increasing each year. On top of that, 25,000 people, including more than 10,000 children, die from hunger each day. Hunger is killing more people than HIV, malaria, and tuberculosis combined, according to the United Nations. Although it takes billions of dollars and many many years to end world poverty - 175 billion dollars per year for 20 years based on experts' calculations, we can contribute what we can afford to help as many people as possible right now.

Each month, Charitocracy and our amazing donors hand select charities that are devoted to ending world hunger, promoting healthy diets, local food sourcing, and sustainable food production. This includes national and local food banks and food pantries. By the end of the month, through voting we select one charity out of all the nominated charities from all 12 categories to which we donate our monthly pooled donations. Chances are, the charities you nominate or vote for will win Charitocracy's monthly grant!

Take a look at the list below of food charities that have won our monthly pot in the past. Then check out the current food charity nominees (or all nominees) for this month's voting. Are we missing one you'd like to win? Join us and nominate your favorite food charity to add to our voting list!
