At Hungry For Life, we exist because we see two problems and a common solution.

Physical Poverty: Today, half the world is desperately poor. Three billion people are wrestling with situations of hunger, sickness, and desperation. But, there is a potential for change and there are opportunities to flourish. 

Spiritual Apathy: In complete contrast, the Western world has been blessed with the single greatest concentration of material wealth in human history. Lives comfort, safety, and excess has left us wanting more. We too are hungry.
