Plants-4-Hunger is our hunger relief program that maximizes the well-being of people, animals, and the environment.
Instead of using animal-based foods or "gifting" live animals from an organization like Heifer International, your donation supports plant-based hunger relief projects serving some of the world's most impoverished children.
While designed as a gift-donation program, you can also donate directly in support of the programs and not as a gift-donation. Both styles are critically important and tremendously appreciated.
Below are the plant-based feeding programs that will share 100% of your gift-donation.
When donating, choose "Plants-4-Hunger" in the program drop-down menu and (if it's a gift) "Tribute - In Honor Of." You can also leave a note in the comment field or e-mail [email protected] with details.
We will mail a personalized card and our info booklet to your recipient (if an address is provided) or send an e-mail notification. For immediate use or last minute gifts, you can also download one of our e-cards to e-mail your recipient or our printable certificates for in-person gifts.
Many people also choose to make a regular donation... you do NOT need a gift recipient to help.
Plant-Based School Meals
Through our partners International Fund for Africa (IFA) and Grassroot Movement In Nepal (GMIN), A Well-Fed World sponsors plant-based school meals for children in need in Ethiopia and Nepal. IFA’s school nutrition program also builds on-site bakeries and mushroom gardens to generate income and long-term sustainability, while GMIN’s school meal program in Nepal supports the local economy through purchase of grains, legumes and produce directly from local farmers.
Through our partners the Fruit Tree Planting Foundation we are able to support reforestation with native food trees in villages of the Amazon rainforest that have been hard hit by deforestation. We also support school food forest projects in more than 35 schools across Kenya through the Green Generation Initiative. Food trees address the triple crises of global hunger, climate change, and biodiversity loss by providing food and income, carbon sequestration, and wildlife habitat.
Community Food Gardens
Grow Where You Are is a team of veganic farmers and food justice activists empowering people to improve their nutrition and food security by planting backyard and community food gardens in urban food deserts. GWYA and their partners MaituFoods also provide low-cost food to school lunch programs and run a summer camp to teach plant-based farming skills to young people. They partner with churches and the city to install organic micro-farms on unused land in underserved neighborhoods.
Our partners Seed Programs International provide organic vegetable seeds and growing expertise to food insecure communities around the world. SPI's global seed donation programs support food gardens in schools, orphanages, childrens’ hospitals, refugee camps, Native American reservations and more. We also support Native Seeds/SEARCH (NS/S), a seed conservation non-profit in Arizona that preserves and distributes climate-resilient seeds of the peoples of the Greater Southwest. Their seed bank has conserved nearly 2,000 varieties of arid-adapted crops and represents the cultural heritage and knowledge of 50+ indigenous communities.
YES! I'd like to give the gift of health AND hope this holiday season with nourishing plant-based foods that feed people while protecting animals, nature, and our planet.
