Last year, 53 million Americans turned to food banks and pantries to put meals on their tables. In the last month, 90% of Feeding America food banks have seen a sustained or increased need.

Helping neighbors help neighbors

Together with Feeding America, we have identified 32 food banks who are delivering more meals to those in need, with less resources. Each of those food banks will receive $250,000 in funding for immediate relief, and to strengthen their tech infrastructure for long-term resilience.

Join us & give back

After a drop during the pandemic, searches for "volunteer opportunities near me" have doubled – surpassing pre-COVID levels. And searches for "where to donate food near me" have also increased by 2.5x.

This holiday season, join us and volunteer at your local Feeding America® food bank.

More resources to support your community
Beyond getting involved with your local food bank or pantry, there are many ways to contribute to food security in your community. From donating homegrown produce to helping divert fresh food from landfills, below are some suggestions to get you started.

Get curious about the stories and the numbers in your own neighborhood, city, state and country. There are amazing resources online about the state of food insecurity and surplus food that could be recovered for hunger-relief.

According to the USDA, food waste is estimated at between 30-40 percent of the food supply in the US, and according to the EPA, food is the largest category of material placed in municipal landfills, where it emits methane, a greenhouse gas 20-30X worse for the environment than carbon dioxide.

Get involved in your local community organizations that are already serving your neighbors who are experiencing food insecurity. They need your help! Feeding America and other hunger-relief organizations rely on the help of millions of volunteers every year and donations of food and money.

  • Volunteer for a packing, cooking or cleaning shift at your local food bank and pantry
  • Ask your employer if you can organize a food bank volunteering event for your company
  • Volunteer to help delivery food with organizations like Meals on Wheels
  • Give money and food to any hunger-relief organization of your choice
  • Find and contribute food to your local community “freedge,” or “mini pantry,” or consider starting one of your own.
  • Growers and farmers can donate extra food with Ample Harvest or Feeding America’s Meal Connect program

Your own voice is powerful. If you care about reducing food insecurity, speak up - at the dinner table, in your lunch room, and with your friends. Use your voice to help organize events and activities in support of ‘shortening the line’.
