Why You Should Leave a Charitable Bequest to Feeding America

Feeding America has made it their mission to end the hunger crisis in America. For more than four decades, what began with one man volunteering at a soup kitchen in Arizona, has culminated in so much more. John van Hengel was so moved he began exploring the concept of food banking. The first year his organization opened, St. Mary’s Food Bank in Phoenix, Arizona ensured that 275,000 pounds of food went to hungry people in need. 

With a network of more than 200 food banks all across the United States, Feeding America works tirelessly and has fed more than 40 million people - including 12 million children and 7 million seniors.
