Spring ’22 Project – Community Dinners!

It’s time for our first 2022 project! We’re partnering with our friends Pure Hope to launch 9 community dinners in Atlanta. Why Community Dinners? Watch our friend, Dale Stephens, share why Community Dinners are so important: Pure Hope provides 3 meals per month from March to October to vulnerable communities in Atlanta’s Upper Westside.  These meals differ from relief in that […]

“100% of your donation goes directly to the project”

If you’ve been tracking along with Hungry For A Day for a while, you’ll have seen this phrase “100% of your donation goes directly to the project“. Why is this important? How do we do this? Often donors evaluate nonprofits on what percentage of their revenue goes to cover operating expenses. While we may not agree on the validity of […]

2021 Thanksgiving Results

What an incredible outpouring of generosity 2021 brought. Because of the generosity of so many, we were able to provide 37,140 people a meal this holiday season. Over the past 10 years, over 160,000 have had a better Thanksgiving. Your gifts fed the homeless and the food insecure. You helped people in inner cities and in rural communities. From California to Massachusetts, from Michigan to Florida, we […]

Thanksgiving 2021! (25,000 Meals – Take 4)

Today, we’re excited to announce our 2021 Thanksgiving Project. If you’ve been following us on social media, you already know our goal is to provide a meal to 25,000 people! We’ve been chasing the 25,000 goal for a while now. In 2018, we fed just over 22,000. 2019 brought us to 23,000 and in 2020, about 22,000 were helped. This […]

Feeding the community and building relationships – Second Summer Project ’21 !!!

We’re excited to announce we are partnering with Community Bucket and their FeedATL Summer Series to help four urban gardens in Atlanta provide fresh produce to under-served communities.  These urban farms operate in areas known as food deserts. They are typically in low income areas with limited transportation options, where people lack access to healthy, affordable food in their neighborhoods. Usually, […]

2021 Summer Project #1 – Results!

Our goal was to raise $3,000 to buy a commercial refrigerator. We’re super excited to announce that we raised over $4,700 which will not only cover the cost of the fridge, but also help with the costs of getting the electric run / installation – and hopefully enough left over to fill that fridge up! We couldn’t have done it without each of you, so thank […]

Summer 2021!

It’s been a while since you’ve heard from us, but we’ve got a need that we know you’re going to be excited about! We got introduced to Hollie and Bill (and the Pritchard Homeless Outreach) a few months ago. They live in the northwest suburbs of Atlanta. They kept seeing homeless people in their town and rather than just giving […]

A 2020 Contemplation (and what’s to come)

Today is December 1st. It’s the day we typically launch our final project of the year. Thinking about this time last year, I don’t think anyone could have imagined the complete craziness of 2020. Giving to Hungry For A Day dipped a bit, but overall, we were still able to help so many. This year, we helped our friends at […]

Thanksgiving Time!

Some of you have been following along for years and know that Thanksgiving is our favorite time of the year. To those that are new, here’s the story… Nine years ago, a church in the Pensacola area, asked us to help him put a plan together to provide 25 families with a Thanksgiving meal. That first year, we blew the goal […]

Summer 2020

This summer, we’re helping our friends at The Collective Effect. They are an organization working in Uganda to provide food, medical care and education to families facing extreme poverty. They run a transitional home for children living in homelessness. It is a safe-haven and home to 20 children between the ages of 6-18 who once were living on the streets of Kampala, Uganda along with 2 caregivers.
