42 Million Americans Struggle With Hunger
Your neighbor, child’s classmate, or even a co-worker may be struggling to get enough to eat. Through our partnership with Feeding America®, you can take action during September to help close the hunger gap and help us reach our goal of 1.1 million meals donated* by purchasing a special promotional pack of Idaho Spuds or through our digital campaign. Established by Feeding America® in 2008, Hunger Action Month is an effort to mobilize nationally and spread the word about the hunger crisis.
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.
