ABOUT US

Welcome to A Well-Fed World…

Welcome to A Well-Fed World…

Welcome to our new website and thank you for your interest in our mission to feed people and save animals. Below are some highlights and general information about our work for quick review. Our user-friendly navigation bar has links to detailed information including free educational materials and active programs. Please sign-up for our monthly e-newsletter for special alerts and updates. »

What We Do…

What We Do…

Our work chips away at two of the world’s most immense, unnecessary, and unconscionable forms of suffering… the suffering of people hungry from lack of food, and the suffering of animals used and abused for food. In addition to advocacy, we partner with and assist groups to distribute vegan food to people in need, build food gardens in low-income countries, and strengthen farm animal care/rescue. »

Feeding People…

Feeding People…

Today’s food system results in well over two billion malnourished people, with millions dying every year due to hunger-related causes, and millions more due to diseases of affluence. A world that is “well-fed” ensures enough quality food for everyone. Such food maximizes well-being and minimizes harm, thus nourishing people, protecting animals, and sustaining the planet. »

Saving Animals…

Saving Animals…

Globally, 70 billion land animals die annually because of our meat-centric food system. That’s 130,000+ every minute. As some of the world’s top per capita meat consumers, Americans are responsible for more than one million farmed animal deaths every hour. If left unchecked, the global numbers could skyrocket to 100 billion by 2050, with most suffering horrific factory farm conditions. »

Cooling Climate…

Cooling Climate…

The United Nations reported that animal agriculture is responsible for more greenhouse emissions (GHGs) than all transportation combined. Other environmental specialists concluded it is responsible for more than half of all human-caused GHGs. Regardless of production method, minimizing consumption of animal-sourced foods (meat, dairy, and eggs) is critical to reducing our climate footprint. »

Why Support Us…

Why Support Us…

Our dual mission uniquely helps both people and animals in dire need.
