Plants-4-Hunger (Gift-Giving)

Say NO to Farm Animals as “Gifts”

Help People AND Animals!

Plants-4-Hunger logoPlants-4-Hunger is our campaign that feeds children without using animals.

Instead of using a “gift-pig” as food from a group like Heifer International, your gift will support on-the-ground, animal-free hunger relief projects. Our four hand-picked programs are detailed below.

A Well-Fed World will match your December donation!

We will send 200% of this month’s Plants-4-Hunger donations to the groups below that provide both immediate assistance and long-term solutions.


How it Works

Below are the four projects that will equally share your doubled gift-donation.

When donating, choose “Tribute – In Honor Of” and “Plants-4-Hunger” in the program drop-down menu. You may also just leave a note in the comment field or e-mail dawn@awfw.org.

We will mail a personalized card and our info booklet to your recipient if an address is provided.

You can also donate without a gift recipient and we will match your donation.

FEEDING CHILDREN – RECIPIENT SUMMARIES


Ethiopia

IFA-school-lunch-program-2014International Fund for Africa provides immediate and long-term assistance to some of the world’s most vulnerable children through their new innovative and multi-prong School Health and Nutrition Program.

In addition to funding local staff and equipment, the program builds income-generating bakeries and produce gardens to increase long-term sustainability.

In each of five schools, about one hundred of the children who are in the most dire need receive a daily meal, health monitoring, and vaccinations.


India

Annamrita-KidsAnnamrita: Food For Life partners with organizations and leverages government incentives to provide lunches at schools in eight states with their Mid-Day Meals Program.

This vegan lunch program not only reduces malnutrition so students can learn better, it attracts children from disadvantaged areas. With special attention to girl’s empowerment, it helps the next generation’s family.

Food is efficiently prepared in centralized locations to produce large amounts of quality food at extremely low cost.


Guatemala

Guatemala Feeding ProgramPlenty International works with agricultural experts to grow and distribute three varieties of non-GMO soybeans to farming families.

Their Karen’s Nutrition Program works with women to improve the nutrition of undernourished children living in extreme poverty at the Guatemala City landfill.

Local women’s groups produce enough fortified bakery foods (including nutrition-packed vegan “cookies”) and soy milk to distribute to 400 children living at the dump site and to sell for other expenses.


USA

Grow Where You Are is a team of veganic farmers and food justice activists empowering people to improve their food security by planting backyard and community food gardens. These gardens drastically increase families’ access to fresh fruits and vegetables in urban food deserts.

Grow Where You Are and MaituFoods also directly provide food to school lunch programs and run a summer camp where they teach veganic farming skills to young people.

They further increase their impact by partnering with churches to install organic micro-farms on unused land in struggling neighborhoods.
