Holidays Without Hunger is an annual event hosted by Meals of Hope. Every December the Southwest Florida community comes together to feed the hungry in our community. In our inaugural year of Holidays Without Hunger, the community packed more than 506,000 meals in just 2 hours. Each year the number of meals packed and the number of volunteers grows.

Sponsors & Partners

The Holidays Without Hunger event requires event space rental, meal prep equipment, the purchase of raw ingredients, and so much more! Without our sponsors, Meals of Hope and the Holidays Without Hunger event could not exist.

In order to cover costs, every food packing station at Holidays Without Hunger is funded by generous community members and organizations — like you! Our sponsors ensure that Holidays Without Hunger is fun, effective, and viable in the future.
