Check out our uber awesome new Famine guide with info on where your money goes, videos, activities and more!


It takes the will to change the way things are – and the resources to act. 30 Hour Famine will help raise the resources. We can’t end world hunger tomorrow, but we can help people feed themselves in the communities where World Vision is working. See hunger for what it really is. More than just a pain in the gut.

For people in developed countries like ours, hunger is just an uncomfortable feeling that pops up when we miss a meal. But for those in developing countries, with no access to food, they don’t have enough to eat every single day. This affects every aspect, every day of their lives.

Help us fight it! 30 HR Famine is a movement – it is the longest standing and largest Global Youth Fundraiser! In Canada, Thousands of youth come together every year to participate. They challenge themselves to learn about the issues of hunger, raise money for the cause and then fast for 30 hours to experience it all.

It’s about battling hunger, going deeper into what causes it and making the world a better place for children everywhere. The money raised will go to hunger projects that World Vision supports all over the world!

Because we CAN make a difference! And 30 hours can change everything.
