Plants-4-Hunger (Gifts)

Help Save Them BOTH!

Plants-4-Hunger logoPlants-4-Hunger is our campaign that feeds people without harming 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.

We raised $12,240 in 2014 in addition to our on-going grants. Our four hand-picked programs are detailed below.

We send 100% of donations to these groups that provide both immediate assistance and long-term community solutions.

FeedingFamiliesList of Programs (PDF)

School Lunch Program – 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 that will sustain them indefinitely.

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

Soy Nutrition – Guatemala

Plenty - Guatemala

Plenty 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 Guatemalan 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 and soy milk to distribute to 400 children living at the dump site and to sell for other expenses.

Vegan Feeding Program – India

Vegan feeding program - India

VSPCA helps people too. Their Vegan Meals for the Poor program provides wholesome meals that are packed in palm leaves and delivered to the poorest of the poor.

The food is a variety of lentil, a vegetable curry, a piece of fruit, and a sachet of drinking water.

The selected days are Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, as these are the days that recipients do not receive food assistance from any other program.

The pilot project served 40 people. Your gift helps Vegan Meals for the Poor expand their reach.

Food Bank Community Gardens – USA

Kitchen Gardeners Int'l - food bank gardens

Kitchen Gardeners International helps communities build sustainable food gardens for only $500 each through their Sow It Forward program.

Because fresh fruits and vegetables are highly perishable, they are some of the most difficult types of food for community banks to provide.

Your donation here will help build food gardens benefiting U.S. food banks.

These exceptional gardens help recipients immediately, and keep on producing in the long-term for a continuous supply of healthy produce and protein-rich legumes.
