Workbook For Feeding America's Hungry

The business sector; including farmers, food manufacturers, wholesalers, retailers, and others, also plays an instrumental role in battling hunger. 

By donating food and transportation and promoting volunteerism, businesses of all sizes help put food on the tables of families in need. 

While businesses already make substantial contributions to fight hunger, improved public policies; particularly passage of the Good Samaritan Hunger Relief Tax Incentives Act. will promote even greater business participation in this effort.

One of the most important ways you can get involved in Feeding America is by becoming a hunger advocate.

Take Action Now!
Advocacy is critical to fighting hunger, and becoming a hunger advocate offers many ways to become active not only in important public policy issues of the day, but also within your community.

Advocates communicate with their legislators about hunger issues

They talk to their friends and other social contacts about the need for a solution to hunger.
Many share their personal experiences with hunger with us.

Even if a person doesn't have a lot of money, they can still advocate.

Tell a friend with money, and then they can tell a friend, and it works.

Or write to Congress, the President, anyone you think can help. Contact Elected Officials

Do a fundraiser at your School or Church, for the local food pantry or soup kitchen.
