JOIN FEEDING SOUTH FLORIDA FOR A 5K
AS WE OUTRUN HUNGER!
Outrun Hunger (formerly March Against Hunger) is a fundraising event supporting Feeding South Florida's mission to end hunger in South Florida by providing immediate access to nutritious food, leading hunger and poverty advocacy efforts, and transforming lives through innovative programming and education.
As the sole Feeding America food bank serving South Florida, Feeding South Florida is the largest and most efficient food bank throughout the quad-county service area of Palm Beach, Broward, Miami-Dade, and Monroe Counties. Feeding South Florida rescues and distributes more than 40 million pounds of food each year, through direct service programs and a network of 360 nonprofit partner agencies. For every $1 donated to us, we can provide 6 meals or $12 worth of grocery products – that’s because it costs us about .13 cents to move a pound of food. Feeding South Florida serves 785,040 individuals struggling to put food on the table in South Florida – 280,630 of whom are children and 150,000 of whom are older adults.
SPREAD THE WORD
Support Feeding South Florida by adding a customized fundraising webpage. Let friends, family and colleagues know why you are participating and collect donations toward ending hunger in South Florida. With a 98% efficiency rating, your dollar stretches further; for every $10 donated to Feeding South Florida, we can provide 62 meals. CLICK HERE to start fundraising today!
With your support of Feeding South Florida’s Outrun Hunger 5K, you will not only provide funds to help end hunger, but you will also create awareness for the ever-important issue of food insecurity. It’s just another way we can help our neighbors in need. Together, we are Feeding South Florida!
