Fight Hunger with Feeding America and its Partners this Holiday Season


CHICAGO, Nov. 22, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- National partners of Feeding America®, the nation's largest domestic hunger-relief organization, are supporting neighbors in need during this busy holiday season. Several Feeding America partners, including BMW, Crocs, JCPenney, Maverik, NBCUniversal, Southeastern Grocers, TUMS, and Turkey on the Table are giving back to help people who may not know where they will find their next meal.

The Feeding America nationwide network of 200 food banks and 60,000 food pantries and meal programs has been on the front lines responding to increased demand for food assistance this year, especially in the face of rising food prices. Nearly 34 million people, including more than 9 million children, are food insecure, and 1 out of 6 people turned to the charitable food sector for help in 2021.

"For millions of people, the holiday season can look very different as they turn to food banks to help provide nourishment for their families," said Casey Marsh, Chief Development Officer at Feeding America. "We are grateful to our many partners for their commitment to fighting hunger and for helping to provide everyone an opportunity to give back this holiday season."

Here are the many ways shoppers can help fight hunger during this giving season:

People can help fight hunger this holiday season in other ways, such as volunteering, making a donation or engaging on social media.
