Action Against Hunger Annual Gala

Every year, hundreds of Action Against Hunger’s most dedicated supporters come together for an evening of inspiration and hope. This special night is our opportunity to reflect upon our mission to save the lives of children worldwide and to present our most prestigious award, The Action Against Hunger Humanitarian Award, to individuals and corporations that have significant contributions to the humanitarian field.

Past Humanitarian Awards recipients include Anderson Cooper, Tyco International, Dr. Hans Rosling, Professor of International Health at Karolinska Institute and co-founder of Gapminder Foundation, The United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization and its Director-General Dr. Jacques Diouf, Visa, Procter & Gamble, and Wall Street Journal reporters Roger Thurow and Scott Kilman.

Our 2014 gala evening will take place this fall. Contact Alyssa Zeller (azeller@actionagainsthunger.org) for more information.
