FH Impact Report 2022
FH Impact Report 2022
At Food for the Hungry (FH), we design, develop, and deliver catalytic solutions that transform systems so that communities challenged by poverty, injustice, and marginalization have the agency and resources necessary to be resilient and flourish. Since 1971, we have walked alongside the most vulnerable people in the hard places.
As the effects of COVID-19, climate, and conflict continue to devastate communities around the world, we are proud that in 2022, FH reached nearly 10 million people across more than 3,500 communities in 18 countries experiencing extreme poverty.
We are reimagining how to end global poverty, adopting a human centered and systems-based approach to co-create solutions with our shareholders. This will build agency and provide access to resources to the people we serve and build resilience preparing them to overcome future shocks and stresses, in whatever form they take.
Progress toward meeting the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) was halted – and in many cases reversed – during the COVID-19 pandemic, and an additional 75 to 95 million people are now expected to experience extreme poverty this year alone. That makes this an opportune time to reimagine how we can do more, with more, for more.
