GET INVOLVED

Each year, our volunteers donate nearly 44,000 hours of their time and energy to fighting hunger. Through a variety of projects in our Volunteer Center, they keep food moving out of our warehouse and out into the community.

Hunger is a complicated problem, but we can make significant strides towards long-term solutions by addressing it in the classroom and the Capitol as well as at the dinner table. Make a difference by engaging lawmakers and other leaders in the fight against hunger.
stand up to end hunger

Help stock the shelves of a local hunger relief organization by hosting a food drive at your school, office, or organization. From non-perishable food to personal care items, every donation has a real impact for someone in our community in need.
