Mission:
Share Our Strength is one of the nation's leading anti-hunger, anti-poverty organizations founded in 1984. In the beginning, we organized a handful of chefs to cook for fundraisers. Today we mobilize thousands of individuals in the culinary industry to organize events, host dinners, teach cooking and nutrition classes to low-income families and serve as anti-hunger advocates. We mobilize hundreds of literary professionals to conduct benefit readings and contribute works to Share Our Strength books. To bring even more resources to the fight against hunger and poverty, we build creative partnerships with a range of industries, including retail, financial services and music -- and we create community wealth, resources generated through profitable enterprise to promote social change.
