Feeding America secures donations from national food and grocery manufacturers, retailers, shippers, packers and growers and from government agencies and other organizations. We have staff that work closely with the partners to match excess food with the food banks that most need it.
The food banks distribute food and grocery items through food pantries and meal programs that serve families, children, seniors and individuals at risk of hunger. Last year alone, the Feeding America network distributed more than 3.6 billion meals to people in need.
SUPPORTING THE PEOPLE WE SERVE
The Feeding America nationwide network of food banks also supports programs that improve food security among the people we serve; educates the public about the problem of hunger; and advocates for legislation that protects people from going hungry. Individuals, charities, businesses and government all have a role in ending hunger
