Help Solve the Problem of Hunger in America…
Become a Hunger Study Volunteer!

HIA

Every four years, Feeding America and its network of member food banks coordinate a landmark study assessing hunger across our nation. The data collected is then used to inform strategy, programs, and other decisions across the Feeding America network. It is also used in policy formation at both the local and national level. Ultimately, this valuable knowledge empowers us to end the fight against hunger in America.
