Feeding America, together.

By Feeding America

In a country that wastes billions of pounds of food each year, it's almost shocking that anyone in America goes hungry. Yet every day, there are millions of children and adults who do not get the meals they need to thrive. Get involved to spread the word and feed the hungry.

No one should go hungry in America. But, unfortunately, that is not reality. Join us in fighting hunger by sharing a story about a time that food played a positive role in your life and how you would feel without that experience. It can be about a dish your grandmother made you to express that she loved you, or your favorite comfort food recipe, for examples.

By sharing stories of the important role food plays in our lives we aim to spread awareness of problems surrounding food scarcity and build empathy and support for Feeding America and our mission to fight hunger in America.

Why join us?

This project relies on the participation and support of people who feel that no one in America should go hungry. If this sounds like you, consider backing the project with a dollar amount, or by submitting your own story. Each dollar and story helps deliver more news about the project to more people, spreading awareness of and support for Feeding America and our mission to fight hunger.
