WHY Partner with Others?

Zanis Crosses For Losses’ partners are crucial to our work responding to disasters, holding community outreaches and implementing life changing feeding initiatives throughout the world. Each year corporations donate tens of millions of dollars’ worth of food and supplies to Zanis Crosses For Losses, which we in turn distribute throughout channels and also through partner organizations bent on making a difference in their communities.

"If we’re going to feed the world, we can’t do it alone. Our partners share our passion to feed children, inspire communities and respond to disasters."
