You can make the difference

Food insecurity impacts 48.8 million Americans – including 13 million children – who don't always know when their next healthy meal is coming.

Millions of underprivileged children in the United States start their mornings without breakfast, end their days without dinner, and struggle through summer breaks without a single healthy meal.

Grand Giving supports food insecurity initiatives that provide free meals to children who need them most.

More about #GrandGiving

Each year, the Grand Kids Foundation and partners turn dollars raised into meals served as part of the month-long campaign. Every penny raised directly benefits our Food Bank partners.

About Grand Giving 

The month-long program hosted each November originated in Curtis Granderson's hometown of Chicago with partner grocery store Mariano's. Curtis founded the initiative after a series of camp programs inspired him to extend his community investment beyond education and athletics to nutrition and food insecurity.

By 2017, the program has raised 15M meals for children and families in need. It has also expanded nationally to include a Day of Service tour, a Unite the Islands fundraiser event, as well as in-person and digital engagement campaigns.
