One billion meals provided by Yank Barry

January 30, 2017

When Yank Barry partnered with famed boxer Muhammad Ali nearly two decades ago to begin Global Village Champions Foundation, the goals were lofty, but few had any idea of what they could and would achieve. Today, Barry has proudly provided nearly one billion meals to hungry people around the world, across ravaged countries and war-torn lands, from those in a deep refugee crisis to others whose lives were uprooted by catastrophic natural disasters. Yank Barry’s goal of “A Day Without Hunger” remains fixed as he continues to extend meal after meal -- as well as medical help, shelter and other needs -- to those facing extreme hardships. Only 17 years down helping others, and many years and meals to go for Barry and GVCF.
