Sunnyvale, CA – October 28 2014 - Stop Hunger Now and Estuate are continuing their partnership in the fight against hunger. More than 30 employees package meals for the world’s hungry on 10/25/14 at Estuate Headquarters at 10am. Stop Hunger Now meal packaging events are a volunteer-based program that coordinates the streamlined packaging of highly nutritious dehydrated meals comprised of rice, soy, vegetables and 22 essential vitamins and minerals.
Around the world, nearly 870 million people lack adequate food and about 21,000 die each day from hunger-related causes. Stop Hunger Now operates meal packaging locations in 18 cities throughout the U.S. and four international locations in South Africa, Malaysia, the Philippines and Italy. More than 400,000 volunteers from corporations, churches, schools and civic organizations have packaged Stop Hunger Now meals.
“It is a great feeling that Estuate and its members are able to participate in the fight against hunger for a second year in a row,” says Prakash Balebail, founder and CEO of Estuate, Inc, “and we are doing our small part in making sure no one goes hungry.”
Founded in 1998, Stop Hunger Now has delivered aid and disaster relief supplies in the form of food, medical supplies, clothing, school supplies and more to thousands of disaster victims and other hungry and vulnerable people in 65 countries.
“What we want everyone to know is that hunger is solvable and is the common thread among the world’s most challenging issues. When hunger is targeted, you give leverage and hope to every other cause including poverty, disease, education and the welfare of women and children,” said Rod Brooks, President and CEO of Stop Hunger Now.
For more than 15 years, Stop Hunger Now has been creating a movement to end hunger with more than 140,000,000 meals distributed along with other aid to 65 countries. Driven by a mission to end hunger in our lifetime, the organization provides food and life-saving aid to the world's most vulnerable and helps mobilize the necessary resources impacting millions of lives.
Stop Hunger Now meal packaging programs offer volunteers the opportunity to participate in a hands-on international hunger relief program and to become educated, engaged advocates for the world’s poor and hungry. In 2013, Stop Hunger Now packaged 38.6 million meals in the U.S. and an additional 3.3 million meals were packaged by international locations.
In its efforts to respond to emergency needs around the world Stop Hunger Now receives and distributes significant donations of in-kind aid.
