After Thanksgiving, Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday, Giving Tuesday is about driving awareness and support of causes during the holidays. While there are several causes that I care about, this time of year hunger-relief tops the list.

I give to Feeding America because I know the need is great. In our country, 1 in 6 people are food insecure. Each of us can do something to make a difference and together, we can help our neighbors in need put food on the table.

I also give to Feeding America because I work here; every day I see how dedicated our staff is to advancing our mission to end hunger in America. I know my coworkers work as hard as they can, to do as much as they can, to expand access to food for the 37 million Americans we serve — today and every day.

Why do you support hunger-relief? Let us know! You can participate in Giving Tuesday in three easy ways:

  1. Donate. For every dollar donated, Feeding America secures and distributes nine meals on behalf of local food banks. Today, you can make twice the impact thanks to a one-day matching grant from Unilever: $1 = 18 meals! To put this into perspective, a donation of $1 today is enough to provide a family of three with three wholesome meals a day for six days — a tremendous relief for our neighbors struggling with hunger this holiday season.
  2. Post an #unselfie (like I did!) and share why you support Feeding America today or every day. #unselfie 101
