Hunger Fight was so extremely organized. We hosted an event to pack and provide 1 million meals for the Utah Food Bank. I was impressed by their ability to be efficient with both the time and resources necessary to coordinate the thousands of volunteers. Their hearts are in the right place as well. Highly recommend!

Hunger Fight is serving children by providing meals and books to those that may not otherwise have access to them. They also rally the community to be involved in this cause.

This event was so exciting! I think the music was a wonderful motivation. I brought children with me to help and a couple of them were not so happy to be there but as we got started they were instantly engaged and worked hard without even realizing how long we worked. It was an honor to be a part of this program and I hope to help again soon.

I had our daughters, son in laws and our grandkids this past Saturday. We are continuing to serve and minister like my husband did. Thank you Dean and Sherry and the volunteers for your service .

I had the privilege of volunteering for the 2nd time for the food packing and boxing of meals and it was well organized, and you could tell the care and work that is put into getting meals out to the surrounding community! It has been a blessing for me and my family to be able to be a part of packing and handing out meals to then hand out right in our community! Looking forward to the next packing night!
