Our 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.
We respect the inherent worth and dignity of every person and treat all with justice, equity and compassion. We honor the lives, concerns and stories of people in need and expect our partners to do the same. We accept one another and encourage diversity of thoughts and ideas.
Although America is the wealthiest nation in the world millions of children are food insecure .For 1 in 6 Americans suffer from hunger. Millions of Americans are struggling with hunger. Child hunger decreases the ability to learn and become more likely to suffer from poverty as an adult. These are some needs of the community:
Nutritious, fresh foods
Emergency assistance for disaster victims
Shelter homes, blankets and clothing
Vocational training or maybe even jobs
The Mobile Pantry program allows food banks to engage in a much larger circle of groups in supplying food for the needy. Therefore increasing the number of people served and extending service into regions. Shuttle Worth Foundation would be a great foundation to help us because they look forward to fund individuals who are trying to make the world a better place. Therefore they can help these poor children and in return they can help make the world a better place by learning and becoming successful.
Kids Café is another program that serves meals to kids at risk of hunger. They supplement the meal service with enrichment activities.

A personal connection I feel I had with this organization is I’ve been to many poverty places many times. One of the places I've been to and have seen the worst is East L.A. Many people look like they are in the worst conditions ever and just about ready to give up hope. It’s sad to see little kids suffer from hunger and it breaks my heart to see them fighting for their lives every day. I feel like we can make a difference in these peoples lives and only lord knows how much they would truly appreciate it.
We need the following:
Donate food, clothing, tooth brushes etc.
Flu shots, T-dap shots and medicine
First aid supplies
These would be very helpful donations and we would really appreciate everyone’s help. We want to aggrandize these people’s health and make a difference in their lives by giving more food and providing all the help possible.
