The Hungry to Help Project

School's out for the summer! But for too many children, when school lunches end, lunches end altogether.

Feeding America designed the Hungry to Help Project to bring families and communities together this summer to end hunger. We've got tons of great stuff to share, including a good-ole-fashioned ice cream truck that's touring the country to spread the word about child hunger. You and your family can get involved and put your goodwill to work... Join us and make summer the season to end hunger!

Where is the truck?

Find out on Facebook!

Collages, gardens, collection jars and more! There are plenty of ways even young kids can get involved in ending hunger...

Still Hungry to Help?

Learn More

22 million children receive free or reduced-price meals through the National School Lunch Program, but when schools close, only 4 million children receive meals through the USDA Summer Food Service Program. That means a long, hot, hungry summer for too many children. Find out more about child hunger.

Too many children find themselves without enough to eat during the summer season. Learn more about the effects of child hunger.

Volunteer

Lending time at your local food bank is one way you can help your neighbors struggling with hunger. Find a food bank near you to learn about volunteer opportunities. And if you don't have time to give, a simple donation is a great way to help. For every $1 donated, the Feeding America network provides 11 meals to people facing hunger.

Set the Table

Start your own fundraiser by planning a gathering for your friends, family, or neighborhood that allows your community to give back. Birthdays, dinner parties, marathons are all great opportunities to encourage participation in the causes you care most about.
