Stop Hunger Now – Working Together to End World Hunger

2014 National Conference

jan1Stop Hunger Now is an international hunger relief agency that has been fulfilling its commitment to end world hunger.

In January, the SageView Team worked together with Sponsors to package 25,000 meals in one hour that were shipped to Vietnam.

The meal packaging program was created in 2005 and consists of an assembly line that packages meals with 23 essential vitamins and minerals. Each meal costs donors only 29 cents and over 175,000,000 meals have been packaged in the last 10 years. The use of volunteers for product packaging has resulted in an extremely cost-effective operation while, at the same time, increasing awareness of global hunger and food insecurity issues across the world.

Every year Stop Hunger Now reserves 10% of its projected meals to respond right away to crisis situations including natural disasters, conflict and famine. In addition to providing food for crisis relief, Stop Hunger also works to meet the immediate needs of those suffering from hunger. Stop Hunger Now’s meal packaging program operates throughout the US and internationally.
