What We Do

Elijah’s Promise doesn’t simply provide meals to hungry people — we use food as a tool for change. We fight to end hunger through promoting good food for all, providing education and job training for the food industry, and creating social enterprise food businesses that help build a better world. You can learn more about each of these focuses and our related programs below:
