Funding brief: Rise Against Hunger partners with nonprofits around the world to provide food and other life-changing aid to those in need. These partners support a variety of development programs that work with members of the community to meet their basic needs and create long-term, sustainable change. Potential partnerships are evaluated by the level of need within the community, the sustainability of the organization’s program, its ability to import and manage in-country distribution of food assistance, as well as conduct monitoring and evaluation on the use and impact of Rise Against Hunger meals within their program.
Prospective aid partners
Rise Against Hunger welcomes partnership applications from nongovernmental organizations, nonprofit organizations or community associations interested in working with us to provide food and other assistance through ongoing developmental programs and crisis response programs.
At Rise Against Hunger, they believe healthy, educated communities are the key to ending world hunger. They invest our food and other aid in programs that teach children and adults, or that provide health care and other services. These programs promote well-being and equip participants with the skills and knowledge to become active participants in the workforce and in their communities.
Rise Against Hunger also works to support those who suffer through crises of all types, natural or man-made. They welcome applications from organizations that are able to react quickly and effectively in crisis situations.

Project start date: Not Found
Project duration: Not Found
Eligible organization: As below
● Mission: Consideration is given to how closely the proposed program matches RAH’s mission and vision, as well as how the food will leverage further development in the program(s). We give preference to programs that are designed to bring about a positive economic impact over time, such as programming that supports school feeding, child and youth development, medical assistance, maternal/child health, vocational training, and orphanages.
● Accountability: All candidate organizations will be reviewed to ensure that they are honest, responsive and reliable. The partner must be established with the ability, expertise and resources to properly handle a container shipment and provide quarterly data and reports on programs, inventory and use of donation. Donated meals are to be used to promote development and provide for immediate food needs, not to support political or theological agendas. Efforts are made to ensure that assistance is not being provided to or used to support any oppressive, destructive, or exploitative group(s) or individual(s).
● Logistics: Meal distribution partners must have the ability to pay for the full cost of shipping and customs clearance of all requested containers. In addition, each partner must have experience, knowledge and the ability to guide each shipment through customs and safely to its final destination in a reasonable amount of time.
● Storage: The partner also needs to have the ability to store and secure a minimum of 20 pallets of meals. Each pallet is approximately 4ft by 4ft with a height of 7 feet and weighs 2,185 lbs. Storage must protect the meals from water, pests and theft. The meals will need to be secured during distribution as well.
● Distribution: The partner program(s) must maintain control of the donated food upon receipt, through storage and distribution. Inventory controls must be demonstrated from the point of receipt in-country to the point of use. Any loss of control could cause the meals to be sold in local markets, which is a breach of RAH’s policy. Partners are expected to maintain documentation of meal distribution and are encouraged to use tools developed by RAH, which will also aid in quarterly reporting.
● Need: Level of need in the country, region and individual program(s). As referenced on page 1 of the application, RAH works to align with Sustainable Development Goal 2. To ensure we are working towards this goal, we look to invest our resources in areas with the most need. From 2019-2021, RAH’s key areas of geographic focus will be Sub-Saharan Africa, South Asia, Haiti, and the Philippines. Selection preference will be given to applications that work within these geographic focus areas.
Eligible Country: RAH’s key areas of geographic focus will be Sub-Saharan Africa, South Asia, Haiti, and the Philippines.
