Give A Meal With Bank of America
40 million people in America struggle with hunger. Many are working families, children and the elderly. Join Feeding America, in partnership with Bank of America, and connect families and communities in need to hope. Together, we have the power to break the cycle of hunger.
For every $1 you donate, Bank of America will match your donation with $2* more.
“I used to work for a cable company. We had it all, really. But then I got hurt at work, and it all fell apart. I did not want to visit a food pantry. But there I was, without work and without food. I was scared walking through that door for the first time, but everyone was so kind. I began to volunteer at the pantry. They saw something in me, and soon, hired me. I was later promoted to a director, and now I’m in charge of a program that works with families to break the cycle of poverty.”
“I grew up in a family of eight children, and even though my mother worked hard to provide, she often couldn’t make ends meet. Today, I run the food pantry at my church. In our community, there are so many people in need, including so many children. Many of us at the church give our own money to make sure we can run this pantry. That’s how much we care about it.”
“I served in the U.S. Navy for 10 years. After being honorably discharged, I worked hard to provide for my wife and three daughters. A few years ago, I was laid off. I took a minimum wage job as a security officer, but it wasn’t enough. It took a lot to ask for help; the military trained us to stand on our own no matter what. My local food pantry helped my family with food and also helped me emotionally, giving me hope we will be okay.”
“My four children and I live in a shelter after fleeing an abusive relationship. I’ve always worked, but right now I’m between surgeries and can’t work, which means we must wait for low-income housing to finally have a home. The pantry at my kids’ school provides fresh produce that gives my kids the nutrients they need to keep them strong through this tough time. I know when all this is behind me, I’ll be able to pay this help forward.”
Bank of America and Feeding America are working together to fight hunger across the country and in your local community.
Feeding America is the nation’s leading domestic hunger-relief charity.
Every dollar you donate helps provide 10 meals to men, women and children facing hunger in our country.
Give a Meal is a promotional campaign of Feeding America® with the goal to help provide meals to families in need. All donations are tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law.
Donations designated to "Feeding America" will support Feeding America’s mission to feed individuals and families facing hunger and engage our country in the fight to end hunger.
