No one should go to bed hungry. Yet all too many of our neighbors do. One in 6 Americans struggles with hunger daily. And up to 30% of children locally don’t know when they’ll receive their next meal.
What’s worse, we know that families facing hunger are far less likely to eat a nutritious diet. Many simply do not have access to the fresh, healthy foods their families need. And that puts these families at an increased risk for diet-related health problems and disease.
Through Food For Families, we want to change that.
Our vision is simple: We aim to end hunger locally by providing fresh and healthy food to those who need it most. It’s about getting real food to real families.
It’s simple. When you donate to Food For Families, we pair your gift with others from the community. Then, we partner with local food banks to turn donations into much-needed food. And, because we believe that every family should have access to healthful choices, our program includes fresh fruits and vegetables as well as natural and organic foods.
Since 1986, we’ve raised over $31 million and donated over 21 million pounds of food to feed the hungry in our communities. With your help, we can do more!
This summer, join Food For Families in bringing the farm to every fork!
Watch to see how your donations can make a fresh difference for local families fighting hunger.
