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.

We usually provide restaurant gift cards so their team can have those first conversations with those […]

Starting Things that Last

In 2016, Hungry For A Day is committed to getting behind projects that will leave a lasting impact.

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.

How could we impact others, through generosity out of the excess we’ve been blessed […]
