Stop Hunger Now India took shape because few socially committed professionals who had learnt about Stop Hunger Now and packaged meals through their corporate events in India thought of bringing the model to India.  Their intent was to build the foundation for a strong volunteer base to spread hunger education and encourage as many people from all streams of life from all age groups to join the movement to end hunger.  The objective is to create a sustainable impact on the hunger situation in India to achieve the goal of ending chronic hunger by 2030.
