Famine for One is World Vision’s newest hunger-fighting program for adults and college students

You’ve heard of the 30 Hour Famine – World Vision’s hunger-awareness program for youth. It’s been around for nearly 25 years, and in the USA alone, students have raised more than $160Mill to fight world hunger. So last year, our team begged the question: “Why on earth don’t we have something like this for college students and adults?” Well, now we do! This year we are launching the brand new Famine for One experience for college students and adults. That means that even though you’ve grown out of youth group, you can still experience what it’s like to help others around the world who don’t have enough to eat.

How does it work? It’s simple, really. You give up food for 30 hours to get a small taste of the hunger that children face day after day. During the experience, you’ll receive text messages from Miquilina, a 17 year-old girl in Southern Africa, who is the primary caretaker in her family, and often only eats one meal a day, to get an even better idea of the challenges people face when they are hungry. You’ll also practice kindness in your community so you can make a difference near and far.

We encourage participants to make a goal to raise $425 to feed a child in Zimbabwe (our designated country for 2014) for just over a year. We’ve even figured out a super-simple way to get those funds, fast, and we’ll hook you up with an online fundraising page to customize and share!
