“When I saw that the Governor of Iowa decided to turn away more than $20 million in federal funding that would feed hungry children, I was perplexed,” said CEO Joel Berg.

A nonprofit organization says Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds’s decision to not accept millions of federal dollars for a summertime food assistance program would increase the number of hungry children.

We are so proud of what we have accomplished this past year. Thanks to your partnership, we connected over 5,000 households to vital food programs, securing more than $18 million in SNAP and WIC nutrition assistance benefits.

Despite our best efforts, the nation experienced a major decline in overall charitable giving in 2022 and 2023, the first such decline in decades, and our organization was not immune. Our funding has decreased at a time when people need us more than ever.

As we continue to face these immense challenges, your support matters more than ever. Can you donate to Hunger Free America? With your continued generosity, we can end hunger in this country, once and for all.

“The top thing I would ask for is the state to have a comprehensive plan to use modern technology to make sure people can apply for all the benefits they need at once without having to travel or having spent time and money to go to a dozen government offices,” said Hunger Free America CEO Joel Berg.

Hunger Free America saw hunger rise in autumn months.

"Just as no one should be surprised if drought increases when water is taken away, no one should be shocked that when the government takes away food, as well as money to buy food, hunger rises."

"Effective federal public policies over the previous few years were spectacularly successful in stemming U.S. hunger, but as many of those policies have been reversed, hunger has again soared," said one expert.
