Hunger and Livelihoods
Helping Families Provide for their Children
Children are more likely to be healthy and educated when their families are not worried about where the next meal will come from. But in many rural parts of the world, families urgently need support to grow or buy a variety of foods for their children to thrive. To effectively fight child hunger and improve children's wellbeing, nutritious food must be made available to families, and families must have the means to buy it.
Take Action to Fight Child Hunger
Americans are the most generous food donors in the world. International food aid saves millions of lives every year and helps children get the nutrition they need to survive and thrive. But, it could be reaching millions more hungry children without costing taxpayers a penny more. Tell Congress to Fight Child Hunger and Support U.S. Food Aid Reform
About Our Programs
To help parents provide for their children's basic nutritional needs, Save the Children's hunger and livelihoods programs focus on improving the food supply, farming practices and finances of families in need.
In 2012, Save the Children's livelihoods programs reached more than 7 million children and adults, thanks to the many families, government officials and community volunteers who contribute their time and support to help these children thrive.
Our new Food for Thought report looks at how missing out on nutritious food in the early years can impact a child's ability to learn and earn.
