4th District AAF & Feeding America – Give a Little, Feed a Lot
Partnership, a public service project of the American Advertising
Hunger is a reality for 1 in 8 Americans, including millions of children, seniors and working poor. Yet the problem of hunger in the U.S. has remained invisible to most Americans. Many people have the misperception that it is only associated with pockets of society. In actuality, we all know and are in contact with people who are affected by hunger.
With the power of 4th Districts AAF’s 2,000 advertising professionals and 25 local federations throughout Florida and the Caribbean the 4th District AAF will launch a statewide effort to help reduce hunger. The Give a Little, Feed a Lot Partnership will not only raise much needed funds, but also apply the communication skills of the 4th District AAF members to encourage others to take action against hunger.
Feeding America is the nation's leading domestic hunger-relief charity. Feeding America’s mission is to feed America's hungry through a nationwide network of member food banks and engage our country in the fight to end hunger.
A network of more than 200 food banks serves all 50 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico. The Feeding America network secures and distributes more than 2 billion pounds of donated food and grocery products annually. The Feeding America network supports approximately 63,000 local charitable agencies that distribute food directly to Americans in need. Those agencies operate more than 70,000 programs including food pantries, soup kitchens, emergency shelters, after-school programs, Kids Cafes and BackPack Programs.
