Hunger Doesn't Take a Vacation

summer 2019 matching campaign

The need for nutritious food doesn't disappear after the winter holidays. In fact, during the summertime, there is often increased need, since programs like school lunch aren't available.

To encourage young people to get involved, this donor has agreed to match all contributions from millennial donors (ages 18-35) 2:1. Millennial dollars will go twice as far - at no additional cost to you.
