What supporters like you are saying

"My husband and I discovered Action Against Hunger via Charity Navigator. We were impressed by the Organization's 4-Star Rating (the highest possible rating). Action Against Hunger exceeds industry standards and outperforms most other charities, so we know our dollars are being put to hard work helping people." - Malik Khan & Mariam Afzal, Oakland, CA

“A few years ago, I was looking for a reputable organization to donate to that seeks to combat deadly hunger and came across Action Against Hunger. Looking at the many problems in the world can be discouraging. But, I did not want that to deter me from doing what I am able to make things better. And in my view, as long as there are people in the world dying of starvation or malnutrition, global hunger will continue to be the most serious and pressing problem.” - Jim Dunphy, Baton Rouge, LA

"We have given back to many organizations over the years, and realized that it means so much more when you give back to an organization like Action Against Hunger. We know that we are making the greatest impact in the fight against hunger by supporting their incredible work. They do it all, from training moms to providing access to clean water, and they are fighting hunger in an efficient and sustainable way. It is a joy to support their work and help people around the world who really need it!" - Alicia & John Flavia, Redondo Beach, CA

"The mission is compelling; nobody should go hungry. Action Against Hunger is extremely efficient in making progress toward that goal, with a solid ratio of program implementation to fundraising costs." - Richard MacLean, Brookfield, CT

Action Against Hunger is a global humanitarian organization that takes decisive action against the causes and effects of hunger. We save the lives of malnourished children. We ensure everyone can access clean water, food, training and healthcare. We enable entire communities to be free from hunger.
