#GiveHealthy is a national food drive campaign designed to raise fresh fruits, fresh vegetables and other healthy food and to heighten awareness that hunger is a health issue.
The drive starts in May 2017. Until then, organizations and people can join the campaign by becoming partners, ambassadors and to organize their own food drive as part of #GiveHealthy.
Lots of great organizations and people focused on getting people facing hunger the kind of food they really need. Founding partners include Wholesome Wave, Why Hunger, Food Tank and Ashley Koff, R.D., Other partners include the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health (Center for a Livable Future) and the NYC Food Policy Center at Hunter College. #GiveHealth also has a terrific Board of Advisors with some of the leading voices in the areas of hunger, nutrition and health.
People struggling with hunger also face high rates of diet related health issues – obesity, diabetes, hypertension and more. #GiveHealthy is designed to get people facing hunger the kind of food they really need.
#GiveHealthy is using Amp Your Good’s Crowd-Feeding platform to run the drive. People donate by making an online purchase of specific healthy food items for the purpose of donating them to a #GiveHealthy approved hunger organization. The food will be delivered to selected hunger organizations after the drive over.
Contact us to let us know if you would like to be eligible for healthy food donations. You can also sponsor your own #GiveHealthy food drive to provide a way for your own community to donate healthy food to you. If there are groups planning food drives this year, let them know they can run a #GiveHealthy drive for you and be part of healthiest food drive in the country.
Any kind of group as well as individuals can sponsor a #GiveHealthy drive and raise healthy food for the hunger organization they want to support. The only restriction is age.

The food will be delivered during the months of June and July.
