About this project

FOOD INSECURITY CRISIS

Food insecurity implies the lack of access to food or nutrition has declined because money or resources have been restricted. Due to furloughs, layoffs, and additional challenges, experience affordable and nutritious food.
We can help these families to ensure everyone can give back while keeping themselves safe. Our goal is to locate opportunities in our local and global communities to support future successes for those who genuinely need a helping hand and help!

Undernourishment has increased rapidly, starting in 2015. Six-hundred and ninety million people are hungry, or 8.9 percent of the global population, an increase of ten million people in one year and sixty million in five years.

The Zero Hunger goal by 2030 is not feasible if current trends persist. The number of people impacted by hunger will surpass eight hundred forty million by 2030.

With more than a quarter of a billion people possibly on the verge of starvation, swift, well-managed food delivery action, and humanitarian assistance are needed in the most significant at-risk regions.

OUR GOALS

FIND WAYS TO GIVE BACK FROM HOME

The simplest method to help – please donate to our Foundation. We search for the most beneficial organizations that lead the fight against hunger. By donating, you are amplifying the collective impact in the community because a local food bank can stretch $5 into $20 through bulk purchasing. Would you like to help us?

HELP LOCAL FARMS, STORES, AND RESTAURANTS WITH FOOD RESCUE PROGRAMS

Conventional supplies of food bank donations are changing. Many local partners relied on retailers and restaurants for donations. With restaurant closures and retailers battling to stock shelves, contributions from those sources have diminished. Food banks increasingly rely on food rescue programs. Volunteers can help from home by communicating with suppliers, such as local farms that used to offer items to restaurants and stores that could have non-perishable items for donation.

RESCUE FOOD FROM FARMS, STORES, AND RESTAURANTS

Volunteers can collect those items and transport them to local cooperating organizations if a local farmer, grocery store, or restaurant can donate unsaleable food.

DONATE NON-PERISHABLE FOOD

Donating non-perishable food items is a wonderful method to contribute to the community. Families undergoing food insecurity depend on donated food at food banks or organizations to assist them in meeting budgetary requirements and focus on healthy foods like proteins and whole grains to enhance healthy dietary conditions. Another great idea is to call the local agency and ask about foods that need to be replenished or needed.

SHIFTS AT A FOOD DISTRIBUTION CENTER

Food distribution centers need volunteers to sort, pack, and deliver boxes to drive-thru pick-ups.
