Volunteers are the heart of our mission to end hunger by 2030 . Each year, thousands of volunteers join Rise Against Hunger India not only to package meals, but to support us by giving their time, talent, skills and other resources to help us reach those in need. We could provide 13 million meals and support nearly 1.5 million people in India since 2015 because of thousands of volunteers who have championed our cause and supported us. We welcome volunteers of ALL ages to assist with the behind-the-scenes projects that make our mission possible.  Here are some concrete ways you can join our movement to end hunger.

  1. Meal Packaging  Volunteering Activity:  Meal packaging is one our most popular volunteering activities.  We have worked with thousands of volunteers to package meals that have helped many vulnerable groups.  Many corporate partners host our events as part of their employee engagement and CSR activities.  Due to COVID-19 restrictions, these events have been suspended.  However, we have designed COVID-19 compliant meal packaging layout for meal packaging.  More details here. 
  2. Virtual Volunteering: For those who cannot participate in a meal packaging event, due to COVID-19 safety concerns or otherwise,  we have designed a number of activities that you can do  as a volunteer from the comfort of your home and from your desktop, mobile, tab or laptop. Visit this page for details.
  3. Championing the Cause:  you can champion the cause of hunger by inspiring and engaging others within your sphere of influence, and actively advocating for food rights.
  4. Outreach activities: if you would like to do something in your neighborhood to extend a helping hand to those who need support or do some field activities in any of our field locations (note, visiting and working in a field location is subject to us getting formal OK from the field partners – due to COVID-19 situation, field visits are currently on hold), our team will guide you on possible activities.  Please fill this form and choose “outreach” as your preferred activity.

How to Start:

If you would like to be part of the growing number of passionate volunteers and make a tangible impact on hunger,  fill in the volunteer registration form identifying your preferred activity (you can choose multiple).  Rise Against Hunger India team will connect with you and give the details for the activities you have chosen.

Package Meals with Us in Bangalore, Mumbai and Delhi

All our corporate volunteering meal packaging events have been put on hold for the past 8 months. However, this is the time when our meals are much more required than ever. To continue to meet the needs of children and families who are facing serious food security issues due to COVID-19 pandemic, our organization is seeking to resume meal packaging activities, following the guidelines issued by the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, Government of India as well as various State governments, and maintaining utmost care for the safety of our volunteers, staff and beneficiaries.

We are inviting volunteers to participate in meal packaging events in our warehouses in Bangalore, Mumbai and Delhi.  Detailed guidelines are available here.
