In a country that wastes billions of pounds of food each year, no one should go hungry. Yet, for 1 in 7 people, hunger can be a daily struggle. But the problem is solvable - and with a monthly commitment, you can have a huge effect on families and children facing hunger. Your regular monthly support helps the Feeding America network of food banks rescue perfectly good food and provide it to people in need.
Your $15 tax-deductible monthly gift can help provide a families and children with 165 meals.
Why Give Monthly?
Meet Chris Roop – a monthly donor to Feeding America for over 10 years.
Q: Why do you support Feeding America?
A: When I first got a letter in the mail asking for donations, I thought the idea of rescuing food and putting it to good use made perfect sense. There are too many people who are facing hunger and we throw away so much food. It was an incredible business model and I said, “I want to support that.”
Q: Why do you give monthly?
A: Convenience! If I make a commitment to support somebody then I want to do it as best as I can. And putting it on a monthly payment where I don’t have to think about it makes it easy for me and makes it predictable for Feeding America. It’s a win-win both ways.
Q: How does it feel to know you’re making an impact on hunger?
A: As long as anyone is facing hunger I never feel like it’s enough. I’m thankful that there are programs like Feeding America out there and that I have the opportunity to contribute. Of course, I always wish that I could do more.
