When a disaster strikes, our network supports relief and recovery in communities by distributing assistance through out the Feeding America nationwide network of food banks and the programs they serve.
Feeding America first took an active role in disaster relief services in 1989, following Hurricane Hugo, which devastated several states in the Southeastern U.S., and the Loma Pieta earthquake, which caused significant damage in San Francisco and the Central California Coast. Since then, the Feeding America network has been committed to responding to major disasters, and dedicated to helping communities recover.
Feeding America is a member of the National Voluntary Relief Organizations Active in Disaster (NVOAD), a coalition of disaster relief organizations. Feeding America also provides immediate relief through emergency feeding centers operated by NVOAD partners, including the American Red Cross, the Salvation Army and other disaster relief organizations.
Find your local food bank and see how they help during disasters and the daily disaster response to hunger in America.
