Goal 1: Eradicate extreme poverty and hunger
Food for Life Global has served more than 3 billion hot, nutritious, plant-based meals in more than 60 countries since its inception. Every day, Food for Life Global distributes up to 2,000,000 free meals to needy people in over 180 cities worldwide.
Goal 2: Achieve universal primary education
Education provides the key to solving the root causes of hunger by empowering individuals to participate in a society’s economy, but learning is virtually impossible when the pain of hunger is demanding attention. Food for Life Global and its affiliate programs support education by providing not only schools and teachers, but also nutritious meals to give the body and the mind the fuel to learn. Food for Life Global’s (Midday Meal Program) in India, for example, feeds over 1 million children daily.
Goal 3: Promote gender equality and empower women
Food for Life Global recognizes the devastating effects of poverty on women. While women in developing countries are traditionally responsible for food production, nutrition, family planning, health, and education, resources are allocated primarily to men. Food for Life Global programs seek to lead women out of poverty and into self-sufficiency by providing training and skills, as well as small business loans and cooperative savings programs.
