We are a leader in hunger relief, nutrition education, and advocacy. Each month we help 200,000 individuals, families and children who struggle with food insecurity through: meal distribution, childhood hunger programs, and lesssons on cooking on a budget.
Operation Food Search responds 7 days a week, 24 hours a day through the Hunger Hotline where those in need can find information on where to find food assistance as well as other kinds of help. Nearly 1,000 calls a month are received.
Recently a young mother of two phoned, desperate for food. She had no money and only a can of corn in the house. She connected with a food pantry in her neighborhood that provided a grocery bag full of groceries for her family. The pantry helped her weekly until she was able to find a job. Now she volunteers some weekends at the food pantry that helped meet her need when she found herself in a desperate situation.
