If the richest country in the world has over 49 million people who are hungry, there's really no shortage on outlets to distribute. Even in some of the richest parts of the world we find food insecurity and/or malnurishment. Seniors are often overlooked, but they are a grossly underserved portion of our communites. Worldwide there are over 800 million people that do not know where they are going to get their next meal. It might surprise you to find that there are people in your own backyard, your fellow neighbors, who are hungry.
In the cloud! We work all over the United States and we are growing throughout the world. In 2019, we are working diligently to move headquarters to Yellow Springs, Ohio.
From donors and sponsors like you. Some people choose to donate food (rice, quinoa, lentils, pink himalayan salt, cumin), beekeeping supplies or gardening supplies and have it delivered to one of our locations, others prefer to let someone else do the leg work and opt to become a sponsor.
You can find our donation page here.
If you can hold a spoon, or have someone help you hold a spoon, we have a volunteer opportunity for you! So far, our youngest volunteers have been just 3 years old.
We ask that you find a minimum of 6 volunteers, including yourself. If you cannot find volunteers, we will gladly help you.
We have locations in cities all over the United States. We have locations in Philippines, Haiti, Pakistan, India, Canada and Nigeria. We are always looking to expand and hope you will soon invite us to your town if we are not already there.
Scout bees are in charge of finding food or finding new access to food. Kid Scouts primary goal is to engage kids in saving the pollinators that help our crops grow. Kid Scouts, with the guidance of Hunger Van, pack casseroles for the hungry and distribute them to local food pantries, children's hospitals, and natural disaster areas.
