Our world produces enough food to feed all 7 billion people, yet 11.3% of the world’s population is still hungry today. According to the World Food Programme, 66 million primary school-age children attend classes hungry across the developing world. And believe it or not, 1 in 6 people in the United States face hunger with 49 million Americans struggling to put food on the table.
1M+ lbs of Food Distributed!
To this day, Embrace relief distributed over 1 million lbs of food both domestically and internationally to people in need in over 40 countries. Over 935,200 people and families have been provided food packages
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 40 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.
