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!

They did an amazing job organizing a meal drive. It was fun and productive. They could have a better mike for the speaker as most folks could not hear what was being said. However, still a great time!

Hunger Fight is well organized, professional, friendly, and a great group that wants to feed the children. In addition, they offer a reading program associated with Dolly Parton. Bottom line, Hunger Fight is a top shelf nonprofit and I would encourage anyone to get involved.

Mobilizes & organizes volunteers extremely well. Very clean operations area with plenty of space. Articulates very well their vision & mission to meet huge needs of local children served. Laser focused on just a few needs, not trying to "do it all".

Hunger Fight was well organized and efficient. Fox News was displayed upon my immediate arrival and check in. I would suggest changing this norm immediately as Fox News does not support or encourage the the identities of all volunteers. Creating a space of psychological safety is valuable

We first volunteered with Hunger Fight as part middle school community project for my daughter. The entire Hunger Fight team were so helpful in sharing what makes this a passion project for them and how the program improve the lives of families in Northern Florida. We’ve enjoyed meeting other volunteers in our community as well as neighboring communities and look forward to the packing events as a way that we can continue to give back to the community. Thank you Sherri and Team for your efforts and making these events possible!

This Hunger Drive was an amazing experience that I took part in to give back to the community. The process was extremely easy and directions were explained well as to how to package meals. The Hunger Drive made me feel like I was doing something nice for other people who may be less fortunate. I would recommend to everyone who is inspired to help others.
