Join the Movement to Solve Hunger


Despite distributing enough food for 12 million meals last year, Foodshare is only meeting one-third of the need in our area. That means an awful lot of people are not getting the food they need—including children, seniors, and hard-working families. We think that is unacceptable, and we hope you do too!

Solving hunger requires a community effort—a movement. Whether you decide to make a donation, volunteer your time or take action independently, we encourage you to become a part of this Movement to Solve Hunger.


Learn about the different ways you can get involved in our work below, or take action right now by selecting one of the following options:

Your generous financial support will ensure a strong and steady growth of our programs that feed hungry people and give them the tools they need to get back on their feet.   Whether you choose to volunteer with Foodshare or one of our many partners, opportunities abound to help feed hungry people today, and build a better tomorrow.
