Our Approach

We don’t just ask why. We find solutions to hunger that transform and last. Our answer is to build power with grassroots initiatives that nourish people and enrich communities.

Enrich Communities

Invest in sustainable, grassroots solutions and training programs that help community members grow their own food, elevate their voice and share their knowledge with others.

Nourish People

Connect people to nutritious and affordable food through the most comprehensive database of emergency food access organizations in the U.S.

Build Power

Support communities working to transform our food system by building social justice and striking at the root causes of hunger and poverty.
