HungerFight supported our first food packing event at Memorial Presbyterian Church in St. Augustine in 2017. The event was a total success, involved all age groups in our church, and promoted a lasting sense of our outreach mission to our community. We will schedule another, larger one in 2018 and will ask HungerFight to support this one, too, because of the wonderful, personal, teamwork between our congregation and HungerFight. They truly live out Jesus' commandment to care for the poor and the hungry.

WestRock has had the priviledge of working with Hunger Fight for the past three years. Each year our team feels we have made a least a small contribution to a great cause! This team building event helps ensure each member is a vital part of the meal making process! We have been truly honored to help this community!

My team and I volunteered for the 2017 Hunger Fight Event and packaged beans and rice for children in our local area schools to ensure they would not go without food on the weekends. We had a fantastic experience and it was great to be a small part of an amazing charity. We look forward to being participants again!

We were looking for a mission project that our children could be involved with and this was a perfect opportunity. We started small and took a few children and a couple of our youth to the Thanksgiving event at the Prime Osborn Center. We had a great time, everything was well organized, and all were able to participate. They also came and shared their vision with our church congregation and we look forward to scheduling a church=wide food packing event at our church in the new year. Great way to get all ages of your church involved!

This was our first opportunity to serve and assist Hunger Fight in their mission to make sure that kids are being fed a healthy meal which they may not otherwise receive. We were very impressed with the organization and structure of how efficiently things ran. We at Maudlin International plan to make this a annual tradition for our team and their families. I can't imagine a better way to teach our children to serve others. What a huge BLESSING it was for myself and my wife as we watched our children preparing meals for less fortunate children in our community and abroad.... Great experience! Keep up the Good work!!

Volunteered with them twice! Once at my church and most recently at an event with Tote Maritime sending food down to Puerto Rico to help those impacted from the hurricanes! Highly recommend them! Not only will you help someone in need, but you will have an absolute blast doing it! The crew is super helpful, fun and upbeat! Will definitely do again!

Very impressed, not only with the organization of the event, but the nutritional value that is packed into each meal and the positive attitudes of the staff that guided the volunteers. I can't wait to do it again!

My company was recently able to participate in this event and not only is it for an outstanding cause, it was also a great way for associates to get to know each other through a team building activity. This event is very well organized, competitive and a lot of fun!

My family has worked at the thanksgiving packing event for several years in a row and I’m always impressed by how efficiently it is run. I also volunteer at a food bank and we really appreciate getting the complete and nutritious meals Hunger Fight delivers to us.

Our school, Hyde Grove Early Learning Center, partnered with Hunger Fight over the past year to feed the students at our Title I School. It’s a comfort to know that our students go home with nutritious meals for themselves and their families.
