This August, the month of India’s Independence, HungerMitao has taken on the challenge to raise at least $10,000 in support of Houston Food Bank's mission to fight hunger across the 18 counties it serves. The efficiencies of the food bank enable a single dollar to be stretched into 3 meals, making the impact of our collective donations significant.
Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic earlier this year, shelter in place, lockdowns and quarantines have caused businesses to shut down and furlough employees, resulting in unprecedented levels of unemployment. The need for food assistance and related services has gone up exponentially. There are thousands of food-challenged people in communities we live in, who depend on the Food Bank, and the Food Bank depends on our generosity to feed them.
Thank you so much for your gift today.
HungerMitao is a volunteer-driven grassroots movement focused on raising awareness about hunger in the USA, improving community engagement, as well as channeling resources and contributions of the Indian American community to fight hunger through the Feeding America network of food banks. Over the almost two years since its launch, the movement is closing in on enabling 20 million meals through Feeding America and Food Banks in Houston, North Texas, New York City, Atlanta, and Seattle.
