We Can End Malnutrition In Our Lifetime

Share Your Lunch With the Poor and Malnourished

Giving Tuesday – November 29, 2022

Imagine eating your lunch while sitting beside someone who hasn’t eaten in a few days…

You would probably share some of your food with them.

Over 2 billion people, 1 out of every 3 children, don’t have enough to eat. 

As part of Thrive’s fundraising efforts, this Giving Tuesday, we are asking you to “share your lunch.”

When you donate $15, you ensure someone has not just a lunch, but healthy meals for the rest of their life by giving them the knowledge, seeds and tools to grow their own food sustainably.

Thrive empowers people with the training and simple tools they need to grow an abundance of healthy, organic, disease-fighting foods for life, sustainably.

The hunger for nutrition is universal.

Access is not.

We are on a mission to change that.

The Problem

2 billion people – including 33% of children – aren’t getting enough life-giving nutrients to reach their full potential and fight disease.

The problem is “hidden hunger” — a chronic lack of vitamins, minerals and micronutrients only whole foods can deliver. Hidden hunger shows up when the first priority is to get food in bellies, and “nutrition” means meal after meal of processed, white grains and corn.

Hidden hunger keeps people from escaping extreme poverty. It causes kids to miss school. It prevents adults from working when they’re chronically ill. And it orphans too many children.

Until now, a nutrient-dense diet has seemed out of reach for the poor.

But with Life Gardens, anyone can grow health.

For people in developing countries, access to nutritious food can change everything.

The Solution

How do we tackle hidden hunger?

Simply, through Life Gardens.

Thrive trains and equips people to grow an abundance of healthy, organic, disease-fighting foods and medicinal plants. With knowledge, simple tools, and starter seeds, people who can’t afford to buy healthy food can grow their own – sustainably.

We call these projects Life Gardens because growing health is the first step to a thriving life.
