Alleviating Hunger Worldwide
Our world produces enough food to feed all 8 billion people, yet 815 million are currently hungry due to their lack of resources, an extremely unequal income distribution in the world, and conflict within specific countries. According to the World Food Programme,66 million primary school-age children attend classes hungry across the developing world, with 23 million in Africa alone. This causes poor nutrition in nearly half of deaths in children under five—3.1 million children each year. And, believe it or not, 1 in 6 Americans–around 49 million—struggle regularly to put food on the table.
How Embrace Relief Fights Hunger
To combat this tragic issue, since 2013 Embrace Relief has organized countless food drives and food distribution campaigns. As of today, we have distributed over 1.5 million pounds of food both domestically and internationally to those most in need in over 50 countries. We distributed a great portion of this food directly to people through delivery or community events, the rest to regional food banks and local pantries. Our volunteers devoted their time and energy to soup kitchens, homeless shelters, and community gatherings on many occasions.

By providing food directly to people, we address hunger and malnutrition and help to reduce health complications, increasing productivity and allowing children to remain in school.
Malnourishment causes stunted physical and emotional development in children. By providing food to children, we give them the chance to grow into healthy adults.
