This matching grants program emerged from the Foundation’s Fight Hunger the Healthy Way campaign. The goals of the campaign are to raise awareness about the growing problem of hunger in suburban communities, and to inspire action on behalf of those who depend on emergency food programs. The program is also part of the Eat. Play. Live…Better community coalition of local partners who are working to increase access to healthy and affordable meals for residents of all ages and incomes.
