ABOUT THE ALLIANCE TO END HUNGER
The Alliance to End Hunger engages diverse institutions to build the public and political will to end hunger at home and abroad.
WHO WE ARE
The Alliance to End Hunger believes that it takes the combined effort of all sectors in society to end hunger at home and abroad. In our efforts towards this goal, we have grown into a diverse coalition of 90 member organizations – corporations, non-profit groups, universities, associations, individuals, health care providers, foundations, and faith-based organizations – all working together in the fight against hunger. The Alliance to End Hunger develops innovative partnerships among our members; political commitment among our leaders; and connections among groups working to end hunger domestically and internationally.
- Foster Strategic Partnerships: We initiate unique partnerships among our members that expand their efforts to benefit the hungry people they serve. By establishing connections between our member organizations, we facilitate collaboration on the most effective solutions to combat hunger.
- Building Political Commitment: We elevate hunger on the national agenda by encouraging our political leaders to advocate on behalf of poor and hungry people. Alliance members are working together to urge some of the most influential anti-hunger leaders in Congress to use their political power to influence policy on both the national and international level.
- Hunger Free Communities Initiative: Through our establishment of the Hunger Free Communities Initiative, we help convene diverse community-led coalitions and support their work to better understand hunger within their communities. This initiative facilitates the start-up process, connects coalitions with members of Congress and other elected officials, initiates communication among groups, shares best practices, and supports the USDA Hunger Free Communities grant program in Congress.
- The National Alliance Partnership Program (NAPP):
The National Alliance Partnership Program (NAPP) is an effort by the US Alliance to End Hunger to provide capacity building for Alliance organizations in six developing countries: Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Ethiopia, Malawi, and one Latin American/Caribbean country (to be announced). Following a grant by the International Fund for Agricultural Development, the Alliance has received additional funding to continue work through 2016.
