Fast for Awareness
Fast for Awareness is designed to raise awareness about global malnutrition and help raise funds for ACF's life-saving programs. Participants will fast for an allotted time without any food, but beverages can be provided. The purpose of the fast is so that participants can experience something similar to what many around the world feel on a regular basis. Download the Fast for Awareness planning guide.
