School’s out. Hunger’s not.
Help Us Mash Out Hunger One Meal at a Time! A couple of clicks could help us reach our goal of 1.1 million meals.meals* donated so far
As summer approaches, the end of the school year marks the beginning of a hungry season for millions of kids who rely on school for regular access to food. 22 million children receive free or reduced-price meals through the National School Lunch Program during the school year. But when school is out during the summer, less than 4 million receive meals through the USDA Summer Food Service Program. This summer, help us Mash Out Hunger and reach our goal to donate 1 million meals* with a special promotional pack and digital campaign to raise awareness and help kids and families in need.
A dollar donation to Feeding America® equals 11 meals secured and distributed by Feeding America® on behalf of local food banks. (Subject to change based on annual conversion rates.) Feeding America® does this through securing food on a local and national level from manufacturers, retailers, farmers, government sources and consumer donations; distributing food on a local level through its network of 200 food banks; raising funds from local and national corporations, foundations and individuals; sharing best practices and advocating on a local and national level for those who are food insecure and more often than not without powerful allies fighting for them.
