#GiveHealthy is the start of a movement and it starts today! That’s big news. We’re thrilled to be a part of it.
Donating food is the most popular form of giving in the United States. More people donate food than watch the Superbowl. That’s the good news.
The not good news? A lot of the food people donate is unhealthy. Highly processed canned goods.
Why does this matter? Because hunger is a health issue. People struggling with hunger also face high rates of diet related health issues – obesity, diabetes, cancer and more.

That’s where #GiveHealthy comes in. It’s designed to raise things like fresh fruits, fresh vegetables and other healthy food and to heighten public awareness that hunger is a health issue.
