In 2007 Action Against Hunger teamed up with some celebrities such as Cat Cora, Jeremiah, Somi and many more in an effort to spread the message about hunger in the world. On April 12th, 2007 Action Against Hunger held a Restaurants Against Hunger Celebrity Kickoff Part in New York city to promote the Restaurants Against Hunger campaign.
Recognized as a world leader in the fight against hunger and malnutrition, Action Against Hunger has pursued its vision of a world without hunger for three decades, combating hunger in emergency situations of conflict, natural disaster, and chronic food insecurity. With 6,000+ staff in 40 countries, our innovative programs reach some 5 million people each year, restoring dignity, self-sufficiency, and independence to populations throughout the world.
Today, 854 million people around the world still suffer from hunger and more than one billion people lack access to drinking water. Action Against Hunger's food security programs include both emergency programs - such as emergency food distributions - as well as long-term programs. These programs aim at boosting agricultural and/or economic activity providing populations with sufficient access to food of a satisfactory quality and improving self-sufficiency.
We attend the Benefit party for the Restaurants Against Hunger campaign, to raise funds for Action Against Hunger, an International agency devoted to fighting hunger in over 43 countries in the world. Their aid helps children and adults with severe malnutrition and in many cases brings them back from the brink of death.
