Help write the recipe for ending hunger

We're excited to announce that we're partnering with Students Rebuild, a program of the Bezos Family Foundation, as part of the Students Rebuild Hunger Challenge. The Hunger Challenge empowers young people and educators to learn about and address issues of hunger and malnutrition both in their communities and around the world. 

A staggering 151 million children worldwide suffer from chronic malnutrition, hurting their ability to learn and play—and this number doesn't even reflect the millions of young people living in food deserts or suffering from food insecurity. By improving access to nutritious food, we can help more people to live their healthiest and happiest lives. 










Introducing the 2020 Students Rebuild Hunger Challenge

This year, Mary’s Meals is joining the Bezos Family Foundation to invite students around the world to learn about hunger and malnutrition. By mixing heaping portions of curiosity, compassion, and creativity, students will help put food on the table for children in the U.S. and abroad. The Challenge kicks off September 17, 2019, and ends on June 5, 2020.

Assembling the ingredients of hope.

Students, Teachers and Classrooms across the US are invited to deepen their understanding of hunger—and use it as a catalyst for action—by taking three simple-but-powerful steps:

1.         Learn about hunger and how it affects young people around the world and in their own backyards. We provide the lessons and content, or you can use your own.

2.         Create an artfully illustrated version of a recipe—an actual one or a more imaginative, conceptual one—that reflects culture, community, and connection.

3.         Send artistically rendered recipes to the Foundation. For each one received, the Bezos Family Foundation will make a $3 donation—up to $700,000—to organizations like Mary’s Meals addressing hunger and malnutrition around the world and across the spectrum of need, from emergency relief and feeding programs to longer-term agricultural development.
