Hunger Heroes

July 15-29, 2024

Hunger Heroes is back! The fan-favorite food and fund drive competition returns for its seventh year this July.

Community donations from Hunger Heroes play a critical role in combatting summer hunger (inconsistent access to healthy, nutritious meals while school is out).  90 days without reliable access to food has long-term implications on both physical and mental health. In the area we serve, 50,000 children will face hunger this summer.

Food donations are important, but we can do so much more through fundraising. Through monetary donations, we increase our purchasing power—the ability to provide more for less. The Foodbank can provide 2 meals for every $1 donated.

Hunger Heroes is open to everyone — just make a team, fill out our registration form, and get creative! As Heroes, you can host a fundraiser or a food drive, volunteer, and participate in Miles for Meals. Justice League is back for those willing to accept the challenge!

Grab your cape and get ready for Miles for Meals on July 11, 2024! As the kick-off for Hunger Heroes, every lap makes a difference. Bring your family, friends and colleagues for an evening of fun for all ages! More information is coming soon.
