In the last year Herbalife Nutrition and The Hunger Project reached more than 16 million people with programs to combat hunger. Collaboration with The Hunger Project will expand three more years. World Hunger Day highlights the importance of finding sustainable solutions for hunger and poverty
The global company specializing in nutrition and healthy lifestyle, Herbalife Nutrition, together with the Herbalife Nutrition Foundation (HNF), announced this Thursday an additional commitment of $100,000 (90,600 euros) to The Hunger Project (THP), as part of its initiative “Nutrition for Zero Hunger” (Nutrition for Zero Hunger). Collaboration with The Hunger Project will expand three more years to finance education and development programmes, focused on women and led by rural communities around the world, affected by food insecurity and malnutrition.
“In the framework of the #MundialDelHambre, we are pleased to provide additional support to The Hunger Project and collaborate with them to end hunger,” said Alan Hoffman, Executive Vice President of Corporate Affairs of Herbalife Nutrition.
According to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), 821 million people live with chronic hunger worldwide. May 28 is the World Hunger Day, an anniversary created by The Hunger Project to raise awareness and highlight the need for sustainable solutions for hunger and poverty, and to inspire everyone to be part of the solution. Hunger is significantly worse in countries with agricultural systems that are very sensitive to rain, major temperature changes and severe drought, and where the livelihood of a high proportion of the population depends on local agriculture.
Over the past year, the initiative ”Nutrition for Zero Hunger” contributed to funding the work of The Hunger Project, which reaches more than 16 million people through water, sanitation and hygiene programmes, food insecurity workshops and leadership trainings for women, in more than 13,000 communities around the world.

“The studies have shown that when women receive support and power, the whole society benefits,” said Jenna Recuber, Global Vice President of The Hunger Project. “We thank partners like Herbalife Nutrition, whose support allows women and men to be agents of their own development. Partnerships like this are essential to achieving sustainable change in rural communities that are already putting an end to hunger.”
According to FAO, if women farmers had the same access to resources as men, the number of hungry people in the world could be reduced by up to 150 million.
