Alliance to End Hunger was established in the year 2001 as an initiative of Bread for the world. It is a union of over 90 members that consists of individuals, corporations, non-profits, faith-based organizations, international organizations, secular and faith-based organizations, foundations and universities. Fight against hunger is a fight that is a responsibility of every human alive, and even as the world has progressed to give rise to a new era of development in just about every field, there are millions of infants, children, and adults who are suffering from malnutrition due to lack of food.
The driving force of the members of the alliance may be different, but the end goal to address the issue of hunger is same. The Alliance to End Hunger follows four main principles to achieve long-term results, which are as follows –
- Building strong partnerships.
- Creating a political will.

- National Alliance Coalition Programs.
