Can I donate food or other goods to Action Against Hunger?

We are not able to accept donations of food or other goods to send overseas. The cost of storing, shipping, and distributing these goods is far too high and takes a lot of time and energy. We strive to supply our material goods, including food, as locally as possible to reduce cost and to use our time and money for saving lives!

How do I apply for a grant/funding/assistance from Action Against Hunger?

Action Against Hunger is not a grant-providing organization. We are a registered 501(c)(3) organization that raises funds to operate our own projects, programs, and operations. We do not accept proposals for funding from organizations, projects, or individuals.

My company would like to make donations/become a charitable partner of Action Against Hunger.

We are truly grateful for your interest in us to create a world free from hunger.  We accept donations from any company – large or small – that wants to have an impact on the fight against hunger. You can make your donation(s) via check or online. Feel free to contact us with questions.

In regards to official partnerships, as much as we would like to work with all the compassionate companies that reach out to us, we have limited resources to fulfill all partnership needs. Because of our limited resources, we can only partner contractually with organizations who can provide a minimum donation of $50,000 for a year or above.  If you feel like this still interests you and would like to discuss further, you can contact our Partnerships Team.

If this falls outside your window of giving, you are still welcome to give to a great cause!

Still need help? Complete our contact form and we will get right back to you.
