learn about the Famine

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.
