About Feeding America
Feeding America's mission is to feed America’s hungry through a nationwide network of member food banks and engage our country in the fight to end hunger. Feeding America is the nation’s largest hunger-relief organization. Through a network of 200 food banks and 60,000 food pantries and meal programs, Feeding America provides meals to more than 40 million people each year.
Chicago Metro’s Seniors Helping Seniors® in-home care service supports Feeding America and created a fundraiser to provide much-needed meals to our neighbors.
How It Works
When you support Feeding America, you are helping our nationwide network of food banks deliver programs at the front line of hunger. Programs like school-based food pantries, emergency disaster relief, and Kids’ Cafe.
Hunger is a complex issue. When people face hunger, they often struggle to meet other basic needs as well — such as housing, employment, and healthcare. That is why Feeding America is committed to more than providing food for people in need.
In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, unemployment has soared and food insecurity is on the rise.
In fact, 42 million people may face hunger because of coronavirus.
Feeding America estimates 1 in every 8 people will face hunger in America.
Feeding America estimates a total of 13 million children could face hunger because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Feeding America estimates 1 in every 6 children will face hunger in America.
Just $1 can help provide at least 10 meals to kids, families, and individuals facing hunger.
Food banks work to rescue food from grocery stores, food producers, and restaurants to provide it to people who need it the most.
98% of all donations raised for Feeding America go directly into programs serving our neighbors in the U.S.
Charity Navigator awarded Feeding America four out of four stars. Receiving four out of four possible stars indicates that Feeding America adheres to good governance and other best practices that minimize the chance of unethical activities and consistently executes its mission in a fiscally responsible way.
For more than 40 years, Feeding America has responded to the needs of individuals struggling with food insecurity in this country.
