Equal Heart supports programs that annually provide 1.5 million pounds of bulk food for 5,000+ families and over 3 million prepared meals for 35,000 children in after-school and summer programs.
A large portion of bulk food resources come from surplus food stock. Food that is destined for the landfill until we divert it to feed families. Reclaiming close to 700,000 pounds of food reduces hunger and helps the environment.
Equal Heart works with 65 partner organizations, 395 AmeriCorps members, and leverages hundreds of volunteers to build community as we work to find solutions to hunger.
