Join the Movement to Solve Hunger



Join the Movement

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. If you agree, then join the movement to solve hunger.

The movement has three parts, designed to not only address immediate needs, but also to address the root causes of hunger so fewer people will need help in the future. It includes: increasing the amount of food currently available for our hungry neighbors, building self-sufficiency to reduce the number of people in need, and involving the entire community in this effort.


Just decide which aspect(s) of our work most interest you and then join the movement. We’ll send you more information on how you can take action that will make the difference for your neighbors in need. Foodshare is committed to ending hunger, and we hope you are too!


These are just a few faces of the movement:

Increasing Food

Ensuring everyone has enough to make it through the “here and now” should be our first priority.

Building Self-Sufficiency

Eliminating hunger means providing people with the tools they need to achieve financial independence, and moving beyond beyond basic food assistance.
