What an inspiration it was to be part of the Hunger Fight team for just a few hours and to assist in packing some 20,000 meals for the hungry. It is such a well-organized and efficient process Hunger Fight has designed to assemble the meals, and with just a little help from the 100 or so volunteers on hand this past Saturday morning, the ready to cook food was awaiting distribution to the families in need. How awe-inspiring and humbling it was to see what a difference just one or two people can make in improving our community and our world. Kudos to the founders of Hunger Fight for all the great work they are doing for people in need!

I really enjoyed packing meals with my Deermeadows Baptist Church family Saturday. Together we laughed, sang, talked, and worked fast as cow bells sounded for 20,000 meals. This organization is easy to work with, well-prepared, very organized, helpful, and fun, filling spots wherever needed! We hope to do this again with them! It makes one feel so good to actually do something with our hands to help the hungry. (The worst part was how we looked in our blue hair nets!! :) ) MD

My daughter and I were a part of making over 20,000 meals this morning at DBC. What a wonderful organization Hunger Fight is!! I love being able to serve those right here in our own community-and helping children at that! I had no idea just how many Title 1 children we had right here in our own county. Can't wait to participate in more activities with Hunger Fight. Thank you to Hunger Fight, for all that you do for our community!

Able to provide 4 family meals for just $1.00, Hunger Fight needs to hear from local Florida businesses, foundations, Rotary clubs, Veterans organizations, churches, schools, community groups and others that want to volunteer their time, commitment or grant funding support.

I truly believe in what they are doing. I work at a food pantry and see the hungry everyday. What Hunger Fight is doing is incredible. If you have not been to one of the events I urge you to go and participate. You will be amazed; not only what it will do for you spiritually, but what it does to the people in the groups. Knowing that you have just helped thousands of people go to bed without being hungry or to school with a meal in there stomach makes a persons heart feel good. You will sleep that night knowing that someone has eaten what you packed for them. and I promise before you leave the event, you will want to know where the next one is so that you can volunteer.
Sincerely, Mark S. Olson

Hunger was made known to me about 2 years ago, since then I have been to and hosted several event. The food we packed I was able to help distribute throughout my committee in Marion County. I also do not feel like just a donor or helper but a partner. The packing events are one of the most full feeling things I have ever participated In. Please give it a try!

I recently learned of the great work this organization is doing when a friend invited me to participate in the Hunger Walk held in downtown Jacksonville. The event was really well run and I plan to participate next year. I am also excited about the possibility of volunteering with this group and hope to attend a packing session. They are really making a positive difference in lives of hungry children in Jacksonville.
