Stop Hunger Now is shipping one million meals to the Philippines as part of ongoing disaster relief operations in response to the devastation that resulted from Typhoon Haiyan over the weekend.

The first container with 285,120 meals will depart this week from the Stop Hunger Now warehouse in San Leandro, Calif. Additional containers of meals will be shipped over the next few weeks. The Stop Hunger Now Malaysia affiliate also is preparing to provide assistance to the storm-ravaged area.

“Stop Hunger Now is acting quickly to provide life-saving food and aid to the families affected by Typhoon Haiyan,” said Rod Brooks, Stop Hunger Now president and CEO. “We have committed an initial response of one million meals and, as the extent of the need becomes more clear, we intend to help as long as necessary.”

Stop Hunger Now is  working with Rotary International and several non-governmental organization partners in the Philippines and Vietnam to provide ongoing needs assessments for food and other aid for victims of the storm.

In addition to meals, Stop Hunger Now is organizing the shipment of other critical supplies such as medicine, medical supplies, water filters and hygiene kits.
