In blocks of 100 meals at a time, our membership provides food assistance during crisis events like natural disasters and supports 198 centralized food banks all across the US. Those banks feed thousands of smaller local banks, food pantries, mobile pantries reaching underserved communities, and community programs resulting in hundreds of millions of meals each year as:
We're A Little Different
One Hundred Meals is a fraternal membership organization, not simply a fundraiser. Our membership shares the common bond of wanting to address this nation’s hunger problem as a community. Of course we love when our members give meals, but we also love building community by keeping in touch about what’s going on, or pointing out upcoming legislation or a candidate who makes food poverty a platform priority, or inviting you to a local member restaurant’s event to fight hunger.
You Might Be Too
We encourage you to do the same. Let us know when you’re hosting an event to fight hunger, or would like to, whether it benefits us or a local food bank or something else. We’ll tell our members and help make it a success. Tell us when something political is happening in your area that we’ve missed so we can help rally the troops. Community works both ways. Together, we raise awareness and spread the message there are things, sometimes fun things, we can all do. Progress takes community. Stand with us.
