Help Save Them BOTH!
Plants-4-Hunger is our gift-giving campaign that feeds people without harming animals.
Instead of using a "gift-pig" as food from a group like Heifer International, your gift will save that pig by supporting "on-the-ground" animal-free hunger relief projects... those that provide both immediate assistance and long-term community solutions.

Homeless Feeding - Ethiopia
Ethiopian Vegan Association's homeless feeding program began with financial support and training from the International Fund for Africa and A Well-Fed World. What began as a monthly feeding program has expanded to weekly in 2012.
Every Saturday, local volunteers procure and prepare 100 vegan meals to distribute to homeless adults and children in the nation's capital. Between the donated food and donated time, it costs only $60 a week.
School Lunch Soy Protein - Belize
Plenty International provides soybeans from local farming to the schools in Belize for their lunch programs. This is part of a national effort to help undernourished primary school children do better in school by providing them with a hot lunch.
Plenty also provides instruction on how to make soymilk and training on how to incorporate these high protein plant-based foods and fresh vegetables from the school garden into the children's meals.
Food & Water Projects - multiple countries
VegFam is a UK-based organization that helps others to help themselves through self-supporting, plant-based food production projects and the provision of safe drinking water.
VegFam is currently supporting six long-term food production/water projects in Bangladesh, India, DR Congo, Kenya and Brazil. Funding provides training, seeds, tools, fruit trees, community land, seed/food storage and food processing equipment.
Project FRESH - U.S.
Earthworks Urban Farm is a food justice organization that provides fresh, organic produce as a direct feeding program of the Capuchin Soup Kitchen. Bolstering sustainable practices (such as plant-based 'green composting' as fertilzier), Earthworks works closely with the Department of Health to help promote the consumption of fresh vegetables among low-income families with children, known as Project FRESH.
This model program provides families with coupons for fresh, locally grown Michigan produce directly from farmers via weekly hosted markets. Gardening classes and youth programs are also hosted throughout the year.
