1. Emergency food assistance
When food isn't readily available and people are in need, emergency food assistance is a short-term solution. Pandemic-related lockdowns, coupled with several major natural disasters, have made emergency food an important part of our support to neighbors in need around the world this year.
2. Cash vouchers
Cash vouchers allow families to purchase food they need in local markets. This approach helps families to select exactly what they need while contributing to the local economy. Increasingly, vouchers are orchestrated using cell phone technology.
3. Agricultural help
So often families know exactly how to address their hunger challenges but just need help with seeds, tools and other items necessary to farm. In such cases, you're able to provide just what a family needs to ensure they can feed themselves in the long run.
4. Market opportunities
Too often households are shut out of markets where they can contribute their expertise and goods. We put your love to work opening doors to markets that offer new opportunities that promote sustainability, prevent migration and help families escape poverty for good.
As we observe World Food Day on October 16, thank you so generously for fighting hunger — both urgently and for the long-term — for our most vulnerable neighbors throughout the world.
