Why give monthly?

It's Sustainable: Giving on a monthly basis is an affordable way to make a long-term impact. We all have monthly subscriptions we use to make our lives more enjoyable and easier. Consider this a monthly subscription that works to ensure more people across the country can lead healthier lives with greater dignity.

What are my donations used for?

85 percent of your donation goes directly to our program expenses. Our programs include:

1. Direct Service: We assist food insecure families apply for SNAP and WIC benefits. In 2018, we connected more than 2,400 families with food benefits. 

2. Advocacy: We advocate on behalf of the families and individuals we represent for local, state, and federal officials to draft and pass into law comprehensive legislation that increases minimum wages, expands access to SNAP benefits for working families and temporarily unemployed individuals, and provides more funding for school meals. In 2018, we helped defeat national cuts to SNAP benefits and led successful efforts to get New York State to pass a breakfast in the classroom mandate for all high-needs schools.

3. Community Organizing: We work with low-income individuals who are interested in taking a leadership role in their communities and provide them with educational resources, nutrition classes, and advocacy training.

4. Strategic Volunteerism: Our Ending Hunger Through Citizen Service Initiative recruits skilled volunteers to serve at hunger-fighting organizations across the country.
