Who we are

The Hunger Project Australia works to break the cycle of poverty. We believe hungry people themselves are the key to ending hunger. In partnership, we unleash their vision, commitment and leadership so they can feed themselves and their families.

Ending Hunger by 2030

We’ve always believed the end of hunger is possible – and now 193 world leaders have agreed to 17 Global Goals to end poverty, inequality and halt climate change. This mean we can all work collectively and collaboratively towards the end of hunger.

Get Involved

We invite you, your business or your organisation to get involved with our work and join our global movement of people passionate about ending hunger. We believe that we each have a role to play in ending hunger – what’s yours?

Leadership

Our Leadership Programs are designed to unearth leadership potential based on what we know best – shifting the mindset and creating visionary, committed and active leaders. Our work to shift the mindset from ‘I can’t, to ‘I can’, to ‘We can’ is creating change on a global level.
