RUN 10 FEED 10 started in 2012 with the hope of raising money and awareness for the dire hunger problem in America. The concept was a simple one. RUN a 10K and FEED 10 hungry people in your hometown. Since we started, you’ve helped us to raise enough money to provide 3.75 million meals to Americans in need. Now, going into our fourth year, we need your help once again to reach our goal of providing 5 million meals.
FEED's work in the U.S.
Food insecurity is a daily struggle for 49 million Americans. Since food is the most flexible item in a household budget, it is often the first expense to be cut. Out of the households struggling with food insecurity, 69% must choose between paying for utilities and buying groceries and 66% must choose between paying for medicine and buying groceries.
Through our partnership with Feeding America and the 200 food banks and 60,000 food pantries in their network, we are providing vital nutrition to families here in the United States to ensure that no family in our nation is forced to make these trade offs.
