17th Annual $1 Million Giveaway to Fight Hunger
In its 17th year, the Feinstein Foundation again offers a great opportunity to stretch your donation.
Here’s how it works: One million dollars will be divided proportionately among hunger fighting agencies nationwide participating in the challenge. Each agency will get a share of the $1million, equal, to the percentage of the total amount raised by all participants. Donated items include cash, checks, and food items (valued at $1.00 per pound) if they are received in March and April in response to the Feinstein challenge.
The more Tri-State Food Bank raises from the challenge, the bigger our award will be. You can help Tri-State Food Bank take advantage of this offer by sending a donation between March 1 and April 30th 2014.
With your help, we can continue to make progress in our fight to end local hunger.
This past year, we were able to provide more food and help more people. In calendar year 2013, we distribute nearly 7.5 million pounds of grocery product for food-insecure people.
Our Back Pack-Food for Kids program now provides weekend meals to over 2,000 at-risk kids each week.
We continue to improve higher nutrition standards with fruits and vegetables making up 27% of the food disbursed. In addition, 24% of all food distributed was from food drives and grocery store pickups, categorized as mixed, and primarily contain canned vegetables, fruits, and soup.
Community support makes this possible.
