The Feeding America network is the nation's largest domestic hunger-relief organization, working to connect people with food and end hunger. Donors, staff, and volunteers all play an essential role in our efforts to end hunger in the United States.
In a country that wastes billions of pounds of food each year, it's almost shocking that anyone in America goes hungry. Every day, millions of children and adults do not get the meals they need to thrive. We work to get nourishing food – from farmers, manufacturers, and retailers – to people in need. At the same time, we also seek to help the people we serve to build a path to a brighter, food-secure future.
In America, we have enough food to feed every man, woman, and child, yet 72 billion pounds of safe, edible food is wasted each year. An estimated 25 – 40 percent of food grown, processed, and transported in the U.S. will never be consumed. And more food reaches landfills and incinerators than any other single material in municipal solid waste.
We work with manufacturers, distributors, retailers, foodservice companies, and farmers to gather food before it goes to waste.
The long-term effects of hunger and poor nutrition can be devastating. That's why it's not enough to provide families with food. They need a variety of foods, such as fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, low-fat dairy, and lean protein. Each year, we do more to secure these foods for our nationwide network of food banks.View Details
