If you’ve visited because you’re intrigued, then thank you for coming, but before you logout 0800 Hungry wants you to know who we are, what we do, and how you can best help us fight hunger.
As most of us are aware, hunger can strike as suddenly as an illness and if left untreated it can destroy the fabric of a home. It's quite often short term and can be caused from redundancies to ill health. But hunger is preventable and there is a cure.
There are two major facts about hunger that need to be recognised:
- The first is that hunger is like an iceberg, there is always considerably more concealed than there is visible.
- The second is that hunger is a reality; it has no favourites, takes no holidays and cuts through every boundary of age, race, religion, and gender.
Worldwide research recognises that it is the health of our children that suffers most when food is short. Research has also proven that children who have sufficient to eat are more likely to reach their potential at school and mature into productive adults, adults who are more able to contribute to society instead of the reverse.
In an effort to destroy the social stigma surrounding foodbanks, 0800 HUNGRY MINISTRIES TRUST has established and operates a food warehouse. By following a God given plan, we believe that we can reach countless individuals and families who through fear, embarrassment, sense of failure, or just plain personal circumstances, cannot or will not seek help.
