Ambassadors and celebrity supporters

We're proud to work with a range of ambassadors and supporters who have joined our fight to end life-threatening hunger for good.

Our ambassadors and supporters are committed to our cause and share our vision of a world free from hunger.

They amplify our voice by spreading awareness about the work we’re doing in some of the hardest-to-reach places around the world. Through the years, our ambassadors have raised vital funds for our work. They also promote our work through events, the media and partnerships.
