Each night in the U.S., 17.4 million families go to bed hungry.
An additional 6.9 million families experience very low food security. That means they don't always know where their next meal is coming from.
By offering access to free fresh produce and canned goods, we provide valuable meal supplementation while helping those in need maintain their independence and dignity. These programs are especially crucial in "food deserts," where entire communities lack access to a grocery store.
From sit-down programs that provide nutritious, hot meals and valuable human interaction, to mobile meals that deliver much-needed sustenance to those who cannot reach a food distribution center, to feeding programs across our hundreds of shelters and residential facilities, we help ensure that the most vulnerable members of society do not go hungry.
Each community garden provides a no-cost, renewable source of
produce, as well as vital work structure for those involved in the
cultivation and care of the food.
