what is the Famine?students around the world loving God and fighting hunger
When you do the Famine, you’re challenging your students to be part of something bigger than themselves. To take action for God’s kingdom. To help save the lives of hungry kids.
Whether you lead 5 students or 55, the Famine will change the way they see the world.
How the Famine works
Every year, hundreds of thousands of students in the U.S. — and thousands more around the world — unite through World Vision’s 30 Hour Famine to feed hungry children and families.
Just $30 can help feed and care for a child for an entire month! Set up your online fundraising page now and check out all these fundraising tools. “My favorite part of the Famine was fundraising. I felt like I was making a big difference in a child’s life,” shared Emma, one Famine participant.
Your students will grow closer to God and each other as they fast for 30 hours! We’ve got tons of activities/games (including the ever-popular TRIBE), and community service ideas (plus schedules that pull them all together) to make your no-eat overnighter a breeze.
Collect the funds your students raised and send them to World Vision ASAP — it’s the only way your group’s hard work will help save lives. Your students will get the rewards they’ve earned, and if they’ve raised at least $360 they’ll qualify to apply for the Famine Study Tour — a once-in-a-lifetime chance to travel to meet real kids helped by World Vision.
We’re with you every step of the way
World Vision provides everything you need to put on an unforgettable Famine event, including a FREE Famine Welcome Kit (a $50 value) with a leader’s guide, fundraising packets for each student, educational videos, and more!
“This is the kind of fasting I want . . . Share your food with the hungry.”
