Stop Hunger UK & Ireland

In the UK and Ireland, Stop Hunger works with grassroots charities to donate time, skills and money to tackle hunger, support good nutrition and promote life skills in local communities.

Stop Hunger supports a variety of charities across the UK and Ireland that help to tackle hunger and malnutrition, either through directly feeding vulnerable people, delivering education or skills training that equip individuals to improve their overall wellbeing and eating habits.

2018 was another fantastic year for the Stop Hunger Foundation. Together we raised over £400,000, which has helped to support the work of 15 charities including a number of new beneficiaries, such as City Harvest and Edinburgh Food Social.

The money rasied has been distributed in grants to our charity partners which has helped fund everything from cooking equipment for the UK's first commercial bakery for young people with severe autism to providing food and living aid to veterans.
