15,000 Meals – RESULTS!

Happy December! Before we announce our December project tomorrow, we wanted to share the results of our Thanksgiving Project. Some of you follow us on social media and already know the news, but for those of you that don’t, we surpassed our goal! We were working to provide a Thanksgiving meal to 15,000 people this past month and we were […]

2016 Thanskgiving Goal

It’s that time again! Today, we announce our plans for this Thanksgiving season. From a humble start with one faith partner in 2012, we fed 55 families a Thanksgiving meal. Fast forward to 2015 and we blew out our goal of feeding 10,000 people and 12,992 ate the same meal you and I will eat (turkey, veggies, all the sides, […]

What’s Next?

Fresh on the heels of raising over $7,000 to start a food truck to feed the homeless, we’re rolling out our summer project. The last three years, we’ve partnered with Serenity’s Steps – an Atlanta-based nonprofit that walks with those in the sex industry. We usually provide restaurant gift cards so their team can have those first conversations with those […]

Peanut Butter And Jelly Deli

What in the world is a Peanut Butter and Jelly Deli? We’re flying right through 2016 and laser focused on our goal of backing sustainable projects that will be around for years to come. We’ve done projects in the snowy mountains of Iraq and the urban landscape of poverty-stricken Detroit. Next up, we’re headed to sunny St. Pete, Florida to […]

Starting Things that Last

In 2016, Hungry For A Day is committed to getting behind projects that will leave a lasting impact. We began the year by raising $10,000 for a bakery in Iraq that will help feed refugees for years to come. This March and April, we’ll be starting a food pantry! The past two Thanksgivings, we’ve partnered with a church (Lakepointe Church) in the […]

Let’s Build A Bakery!

  Impossible. I think that’s always a good starting point. This post isn’t short, but I would like for you to take 3 minutes to read it. We started our nonprofit about four years ago with the idea that life was more than jobs, vacations & retirement accounts. How could we impact others, through generosity out of the excess we’ve been blessed […]

You Are the Difference!

  If you’re anything like me, you’ll receive many letters and emails this month asking for your support. How do you decide what’s worthy of your gift? I usually am looking for an opportunity where my contribution will make the biggest impact. You are a valued part of our community of generosity. Whether you gave to one campaign or have been a […]

First of all, a MASSIVE thank you to everyone who got behind this project (whether that was giving financially, sharing social media posts or getting your company or church involved). Our goal was Ten Thousand Meals. We’re super excited to tell you that12,892 people were fed as a result of our collective efforts between 9 faith-based organizations, 3 corporate partners and […]

Ten Thousand Meals (Fall Campaign)

Last year (October/November 2014) was our first nationwide Thanksgiving Project. We had done a few regional projects before but this was the first time we went big. Hungry For A Day had a dream to feed 1,000 families a complete Thanksgiving meal. We didn’t just want to give someone a plate of food, but the same type of Thanksgiving dinner […]

Lydia. 17 years old. Student. Homeless.

“Lydia’s” (name changed for privacy concerns) mom passed away last year and now she is completely on her own. Her home is an old FEMA trailer. She gets a small amount of Social Security benefits each month, but it’s not enough to cover all of her expenses. Lydia is a bright student in the Dual Enrollment Program at Pensacola State […]
