What we aim to solve

The epidemic of childhood hunger in the US. 1 in 6 or approximately 13 million children are food insecure -- meaning they do not know where their next meal will come from.

What have they accomplished so far and what's next?

Engage in the fight against childhood hunger by serving underprivileged youth in our communities.

End childhood hunger through partnerships with local food banks and like organizations via donation of funds raised, sustenance, and volunteer service. Annually we host a minimum of two fundraising events a year. We also raise funds through our founding organization, Five Star Food Service, via voluntary employee payroll deduction and profit sharing. Five Star Food Service also donates food, snacks, and beverages regularly to our partner organizations.

Feeding the Future is a 100% volunteer-run organization including its Board of Directors. This allows all funds raised and proceeds from our events to go straight to our partner organizations to fund meals. We are also blessed with an incredible network of passionate donors who have been supporting us from the beginning. Most of them are somehow tied to the food industry and the passion to give back in that tangible way is very sustainable.

We know we're making progress toward our goals by the growth of the programs we support at our partner organizations. The more funds we raise, the more we can donate to our partner organizations, the more meals they can provide to kids in need. The need is great, but if we continue to surpass our fundraising and donation goals, we know we're making progress!

Since inception 2 short years ago, we've donated over $108,000 to partner organizations equating to over 430,00 meals! Our goal for 2019 is to donate funds to generate 500,000 meals.
