Thanksgiving 2017

It’s that time of year again! The holidays are closing in on us. If you’re like most of our community of generosity, you’re thinking about who you’ll be inviting over for Thanksgiving Day, who will be cooking the turkey and whether you’l be eating pumpkin or apple pie. We always like to take a moment this season to think of […]

Harvey Relief

Each of us has been shocked and saddened by the destruction of life and property in Houston the past few days. When Hungry For A Day was started, six years ago, we wanted to answer two questions. 1) How do I give? (if you can’t afford to give, go hungry for a day and give what you’d have spent on food) […]

Back to School!

Can you believe it? Students are already back to school in our hometown of Atlanta. All high school girls have a lot of responsibilities to juggle: school, their first job, peer pressure, social lives and the often overwhelming insecurities that come along with being a teenage girl. But imagine adding motherhood to that mix. And picture that young girl living […]

Special Needs Orphanage in Haiti

There’s an orphanage in Haiti that our community is getting behind this month. A longtime friend of Hungry For A Day, Don Shire (we partnered with Don in 2014 to help his orphanage in India) is a friend to those all over the world who some consider unlovable. He ministers in jungles, prisons and orphanages all over our globe. What […]

Refugee Assistance

2nd project of 2017 – here we go!!!! Last year, we wanted to help the refugee crisis and together, we started a bakery in Iraq. There’s still millions of refugees, so our job hasn’t ended. Atlanta, our hometown, is one of 11 cities in the nation that is home to thousands of refugees. Some friends of Hungry For A Day […]

Disaster Relief

2017 is going to be an amazing year for Hungry For A Day! We want to make sure everything we do this year is focused on one thing – encouraging irrational generosity! The first thing we’re doing this year was inspired by the very first conversation we had when we started planning H4AD. In the first few weeks of January, […]

90 Seconds

At the end of each year, my email inbox and mailbox fill up with requests from nonprofits. I realize, Hungry For A Day is just one of many requests you’ll receive this season. Give me 90 seconds to share why you should support Hungry For A Day this year. In 2016, Hungry for a Day made the most of your […]

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 […]

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 […]
