Each month, Life As A Strawberry donates a portion of its income to support nonprofits working to build a more sustainable, accessible, inclusive food system.
Food Banks working in areas affected by Hurricane Harvey
This month, we’ve chosen to support several food banks working in areas directly affected by hurricanes Harvey and Irma:
Feeding America is the largest domestic hunger-relief organization in the United States. Their programs include a food rescue initiative – saving perfectly good food from ending up in a landfill and directing it instead to families in need – and support for a national food bank network.
Summer is an especially hungry time of year for children who rely on subsidized school meals during the academic year. No Kid Hungry helps connect hungry kids with summer meals in addition to their year-round work to provide school breakfasts, advocate for healthy, accessible foods, and teach families to shop for and cook healthy meals through their Cooking Matters program.
