Healthy Lunch

The Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act (HHFKA) requires participating schools to provide fruits and veggies but hasn't given them enough funding to do so. Urge the Secretary of Agriculture, Tom Vilsack to increase the budget for school lunches so cafeterias can source their food locally!

Help fight hunger in America!

And thanks to donors like you, FREE for America's nearly 50 million food insecure. This means over 16 million children live in a household that struggles to provide the food necessary for an active, healthy lifestyle. And without adequate nutrition, these children often perform worse in school, limiting their future opportunities and perpetuating the vicious cycle of poverty.

Food banks, once thought to only provide for the homeless or step in during emergencies, help bridge this gap. In many cases, they're the only thing helping poor, working families make ends meet. And one food bank, Northwest Harvest, has teamed up with GreaterGood to launch Operation Sandwich to fight back against hunger. GreaterGood staff and other local volunteers will prepare sandwiches every week for the homeless and working poor. Then, as the program grows, we'll roll it out to food banks across the country.

You can help.
