Help Stop Hunger with Carrie's Experimental Kitchen and Feeding America

Did you know...
...that 17 million children living in the U.S. are living in food-insecure households and that only 10% of those households struggle with poverty and homelessness? Research has shown that food insecurity and hunger are serious threats to children’s health, growth and development. The nation’s economic growth depends on the well-being of our children. As such, the existence of childhood hunger in the United States threatens future American prosperity.

Hunger is one of the most serious issues facing America and Feeding America is one of the most effective hunger charities in the country, with food banks serving every state. To help fight hunger, I'm doing my part by creating a virtual food drive this summer to help raise awareness and money.

Feeding America Understands Hunger
Feeding America is the leading domestic hunger relief organization, with network food banks serving every state. Feeding America’s nationwide network of over 200 food banks provides food and groceries to 33,500 food pantries, 4,500 soup kitchens and 3,600 emergency shelters. This extensive network helps feed 37 million Americans each year -- delivering over 3 billion pounds of food. Each week nearly 5.7 million people receive emergency food assistance from an agency served by a Feeding America member.

Will you support my virtual food drive today?
Every dollar you give to my virtual food drive helps provide EIGHT meals to people served by the Feeding America network. When was the last time your dollar bought eight of anything? 

Please consider making a donation to help me reach my goal of $1000 this summer.  Whatever you can give will be greatly appreciated, and every little bit helps. Just $1 can help prepare 8 meals for a needy family!  

Join me in helping the fight against hunger by donating 

Thank you so much for your support!
