Make way for a new kind of food drive! It’s online, it’s fun, it’s social, it’s easy, it’s green, it’s national but it’s local, too. Most of all, it’s designed for people to donate the right kind of food – healthy food. Why? Because hunger is a health issue. The 42 Million people struggling with hunger also suffer from high rates of diet related health issues – things like obesity, diabetes, cancer and more.
Why? Simple. Lack of access to healthy food. #GiveHealthy is going to change that. Make a #GiveHealthy food donation this May to a local hunger organization.
In the meantime, get involved! Let’s get people talking about why it’s important to donate healthy food, not just any old food (Sorry Momma!).
Let’s get people struggling with hunger the kind of food they really need!
It’s now possible to donate fresh fruits, fresh vegetables
and other healthy food!
Why healthy food matters.
The numbers tell the story …
High rates of food insecurity and high rates of diet related health issues are no joke. They’re no coincidence, either. You are what you eat. If you are struggling with hunger, you eat what’s available. You eat what’s been donated.
Healthier food donations = healthier kids, healthier people.
