2022-2023 Hunger Heroes
September 15, 2022 - May 31, 2023
The Hunger Heroes annual school challenge campaign runs from September 2022 through May 2023. Your school can make a difference! Many people think collecting cans of food or volunteering are the most impactful ways to make a difference, and while these efforts are appreciated, in these trying times our digital fundraising activities yield the best results.
These fundraising initiatives are extremely helpful because as the demand for food increases, we leverage our ability to purchase healthy food items from our network of distributors at significant discounts over retail. To put it simply, dollars go much further.
Whether you choose to collect shelf-stable food to donate or participate in a fundraising activity, you are helping end hunger in southeast Michigan.
The three high schools that bring in the most pounds of food or dollars (based on student population) could win up to $2,500 ($1,500 for second place and $1,000 for third place) thanks to the Rick Young Insurance Mountain of Food Award!
By partnering with Gleaners Community Food Bank, your students are learning how they can help alleviate hunger in their community.
Every $1 donated will provide 3 meals. We appreciate your continued support.
