Have you set any New Year’s resolutions for 2021? After the challenges encountered in 2020, you, like many others, might be looking for ways to help and make a difference in the new year. So, why not add “help end world hunger” to your list of New Year’s resolutions?
In 2020, COVID-19 caused millions more people worldwide to be affected by food insecurity, and that, unfortunately, didn’t change when the clock struck midnight. 2021 is forecasted to be another year of immense challenges for those facing hunger. As 2021 begins, Rise Against Hunger is continuing to provide critical support for these families and communities around the world — and you can help.
It isn’t too late to resolve to help end hunger in 2021! Here are some ways to get involved:
Host a socially distanced meal packaging event.
By hosting a Rise Against Hunger Experience meal packaging event, you can support the children and families we serve by packaging nutritious meals that will go to people affected by hunger across the globe! The safety of our volunteers, staff and people we serve is always of utmost importance, and during these uncertain times, our meal packaging method has been modified to closely follow CDC guidelines and local regulations, enabling you to have a hands-on impact in 2021 while also taking necessary safety precautions.
Donating supports Rise Against Hunger’s efforts as we work to support those facing hunger. Your support, whether as a one-time or recurring donation, helps provide critical support for communities worldwide.
Volunteering is a great way to help end hunger this year, and you can even give your time virtually! We have several virtual engagement opportunities perfect for individuals and groups. These virtual opportunities enable you to help end hunger and be a Hunger Champion wherever you are. Check them out!
Spread the word.
One of Rise Against Hunger’s four Pathways to End Hunger is growing the movement to end hunger. We know that ending hunger requires the commitment and involvement from as many people as possible as we work toward this common goal. You can play a key role in helping to grow the movement! Inform your friends and family about the issue by showing your support on social media, sharing Rise Against Hunger’s updates, and talking to your community about why global hunger is an important issue. Spreading the word and getting more people involved can have a real impact!
