Our 2021 goal
7 million meals

Our progress to date: 3 million meals

According to the USDA, one in nine people in the U.S. may not know where their next meal is coming from1. As foodservice industry leaders, NAFEM and its member companies care about helping people in our communities, especially those who struggle with hunger.

That’s why NAFEM is focusing its social purpose platform on fighting hunger and collaborating with Feeding America, the largest hunger relief organization in the U.S. NAFEM has committed to contributing $300,000 to Feeding America in 2021. NAFEM also will match member contributions up to $200,000 to their local Feeding America member food banks. This could result in overall contributions to Feeding America of $700,000, or 7 million meals.
