Vetting Centers and Charities

What:

As a nationwide network of 200 food banks and 60,000 pantries and meal programs, Feeding America secures donations from national grocery manufacturers, retailers, shippers, packers, growers, and government agencies. It moves donated groceries to member food banks that, in turn, distribute the items through pantries and meal programs to serve families, children, seniors and others at risk of hunger.

 

Where:

Feeding America operates throughout the United States.

Why: 

Unlike individual consumers, food banks can secure items at costs well below retail prices because of this network of suppliers. Even with recent improvements in unemployment rates and the economy more broadly, the rates of hunger in America remain pervasively high. Some 12.7% of people living in the U.S. (42 million Americans) are food insecure, meaning that they do not have enough nutritious food for an adequate diet.
