Plants-4-Hunger is our plant-based hunger relief program that feeds people, while protecting animals and the planet.
Instead of using animal-based foods or "gifting" live animals, your donation supports plant-based food and farming projects serving some of the world's most impoverished communities.
Not just gifts... while designed as a gift-donation program, you can also just donate directly (once or recurring). All styles are critically important and tremendously appreciated.
How it Works
Below are some of the plant-based feeding and farming programs that will share 100% of your gift-donation.
You can specify the type of organization, or give to the entire program for us to split.
We will mail a personalized card and our info booklet to your recipient (if an address is provided). Or you can send a custom e-card at the end of your donation.
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. A printable PDF of the program recipients below is available here.
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.
Seeds and Beans
Our partners Seed Programs International provide organic vegetable seeds and growing expertise to food insecure communities around the world. SPI's seed donation programs support food gardens in schools, orphanages, hospitals, refugee camps, and Native American reservations. We also support Plenty International's Soy Nutrition Program, which distributes soymilk and soyfoods to more than 300 children and families who live in the Guatemala City Landfill. They also provide equipment and technical support to Mayan women's cooperatives to improve their sales of low cost, high nutrient soy products.
Malnutrition Matters economically empowers women and youth through provision of technology to support sustainable, small-scale production of affordable, nutrient-dense food to communities with high rates of malnutrition and poverty. The technologies offered are platforms for micro-enterprise that empower women to generate sustained income, while affordable, nutrient-dense food is created for the community. The equipment, which is provided to women's cooperatives, NGOs, and institutions such as schools and hospitals, processes soybeans into soymilk, as well as value-added products such as tofu, yogurt, spreads, puddings, and okara meal for breads.
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.
