Alliance to End Hunger

The Alliance to End Hunger, like the Bread for the World Institute, is an affiliate of Bread for the World.

The Alliance brings together diverse institutions to build the public and political will to end hunger at home and abroad. It develops innovative partnerships among its members; political commitment among U.S. government leaders; and connections among groups working to end hunger.

Bread for the World established the Alliance in 2001 as a place for both secular and faith organizations to come together in the fight against hunger. In 2004, the Alliance became an independent organization. While separate, the Alliance continues to collaborate closely with its sister organization.

Today, the Alliance has grown into a diverse coalition of more than 90 members – corporations, nonprofit groups, universities, associations, individuals, health care providers, foundations, and faith-based organizations.

The Alliance also works with a wide array of U.S. federal agencies including the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) and the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA); and multilateral organizations such as the World Food Program (WFP), Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) and the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD).
