Reverse Hunger was an American Jewish World Service advocacy campaign aimed at reforming U.S. food and agricultural policies to better address the crisis of global hunger.

U.S. Food Aid: Where your dollar only goes partway!

Over more than two years, AJWS mobilized thousands of supporters, worked with dozens of coalition partners and helped secure some significant steps forward in the fight to improve the way the U.S. distributes life-saving food aid to communities in need around the world. In early 2014, reforms that AJWS fought hard for were passed into law when President Obama signed the U.S. Farm Bill, enabling our aid to reach at least half a million more people worldwide! The new policy will enable food to reach people in need faster and more efficiently, and it will increase the percentage of food purchased locally from farmers in developing countries.
