Action Against Hunger was set up in August 2012 with the purpose of eradicating malnutrition and protecting our country’s children from hunger. It is an Indian not-for-profit, non-political and non-religious organization registered under Section 25 of the Companies Act, 1956 in Mumbai. The board is composed of representatives from diverse sectors including business, health, academia and diplomacy, with Professor MS Swaminathan as Chairman Emeritus of the Foundation. The organization functions with a small but dedicated team of practitioners. To achieve its mission to end hunger in a systematic and sustainable way, we have developed strong partnerships with various institutions including Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, Department of Women and Child Development, Integrated Child Development Services, hospitals and public health institutions, besides other national and international organizations that support our cause.
