Together, let’s fight hunger

Today, more than 41 million people – one in eight Americans – are at risk of hunger. People facing food insecurity often have to make difficult choices, such as whether to pay bills or buy food, and they turn to food banks to access meals for their families. As part of our continued commitment to advance economic mobility for individuals living on the margins, we’ve partnered with the Feeding America nationwide network of food banks to engage individuals, customers, and employees, as we launch our sixth annual Give A Meal campaign.

“We recognize that in order for individuals and families to succeed in the long-term, basic needs such as hunger must be met,” said Kerry Sullivan, president of the Bank of America Charitable Foundation. “Our longstanding partnership with Feeding America is one example of how we continue to support people living on the margins so they can create better financial lives.”

“Feeding America is thankful to Bank of America and its generous employees and customers for their commitment to fighting hunger in communities across the country,” said Diana Aviv, CEO of Feeding America. “One in eight Americans face hunger, including 13 million children. This is an issue that impacts every single county in our country. Give A Meal helps to raise millions of meals for the children, families, veterans and seniors who food banks serve, while also helping to remove barriers to economic opportunities for low-income families.”

Donate today and see your contribution multiply

From now through the end of the year, every $1 donated to Feeding America or member food banks through Give A Meal, we will give $2 more from the Bank of America Charitable Foundation to provide meals to people and families who struggle with hunger, up to $1.5 million in donations. Every dollar raised will help provide 11 meals to individuals and families facing hunger. Donations are accepted online and you can designate your contribution to Feeding America or to one of the member food banks (defined by your zip code).

Our broader efforts to address hunger relief

We have a longstanding commitment to address the issue of hunger and food access as part of our work to advance economic and social progress. Since 2008, we’ve contributed more than $86 million in philanthropic funding, and have expanded these efforts globally. We also support food banks through integrated services that enable individuals to gain financial stability, including benefits access and financial education, programs that rescue food and prevent food waste, and have invested funds through our Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFI) portfolio to address the need for fresh food in inner-cities.

Give a Meal is a promotional campaign of Feeding America with the goal to help provide meals to families in need. All donations are tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law.

Donations designated to "Feeding America" will support Feeding America’s mission to feed individuals and families facing hunger and engage our country in the fight to end hunger. Gifts designated to "Your Local Food Bank" will benefit the food bank served by the billing zip code entered by the donor. If more than one food bank serves the territory of the donor’s billing zip code, the donation will benefit each food bank equally.

All donations, including the Bank of America Charitable Foundation’s matching donations, will go to the Feeding America network (the Feeding America National Office, or affiliated local food banks). For individual donations made to Feeding America through the Give a Meal ™ program before December 31, 2017, the Foundation will match each donation (up to $1,000 per donor) two-to-one, with a maximum total Foundation donation of up to $50,000 to any individual local food bank, and an aggregate maximum Foundation donation of up to $1,500,000 for all Feeding America programs. © 2017 Bank of America Corporation. $1=11 meals secured by Feeding America® on behalf of member food banks.
