Hunger Action Month Challenge
Let's Strike Out Hunger, Nevada!
The Bases Are Loaded
This September, intrastate rivals, the Reno Aces and Las Vegas Aviators, will meet for series in both Reno and Las Vegas, but on the field isn't the only place they'll be going for the win. During each series, and throughout the month of September, the teams will be rallying with their local food bank to claim the "W" in the Strike Out Hunger challenge.
That's where you come in!
Who will raise the most funds? Help your favorite team score the win by donating to their food bank's Strike Out Hunger virtual food drive.
A friendly competition that fills plates and eases worries for community members all across our state? That's our idea of a home run!
1 in 6 kids in Nevada faces hunger.
Every day, the staff & volunteers at Food Bank
of Northern Nevada and Three Square Food Bank work tirelessly to combat that statistic. Together, we provide vital food assistance to children, families, seniors, and other neighbors in need across Nevada.
Every dollar donated through the Strike Out Hunger challenge will provide 3 meals for communities served by your food bank of choice.
Your Community. Your Food Bank.
Established in 1983, the Food Bank of Northern Nevada has served the community for nearly 40 years and is northern Nevada's only food bank. We are a proud member of Feeding America, the nation's network of 200 food banks.
Working closely with a network of 150 partner organizations across our vast 90,000 square mile service area, we serve 13 Nevada counties, as well as 10 counties on the eastern slope of the Sierra in California. Each month, we serve an average of 120,000 people.
Last year, the Food Bank provided more than 20 million meals to neighbors facing hunger, nearly half of whom were children and seniors. In addition to the non-perishable canned goods many envision when they think of a food bank, we have a strong focus on providing the guests we serve with access to fresh fruits and vegetables and other nutritious foods needed for putting healthy meals on the table.
Three Square Food Bank
A national model project inspired by Founder Eric Hilton with a grant provided by the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation, Three Square is southern Nevada’s only food bank and largest hunger relief organization, serving Las Vegas and all of Clark, Lincoln, Esmeralda and Nye counties. Since opening in 2007, Three Square has provided more than 528 million pounds of food to hundreds of thousands of people in need and earned a reputation as one of the most efficient and effective food banks in the country. Three Square is a community collaborative partnership with businesses, nonprofit agencies, food distributors, higher education institutions, the Clark County School District, governmental entities, the media and thousands of volunteers working together to support food-insecure southern Nevadans.
Together, we can feed everyone.
Last year, Three Square provided over 51 million pounds of food, the equivalent of more than 42 million meals, through its network of community partners. As a member of the Feeding America network of food banks, Three Square remains committed to its mission of providing wholesome food to hungry people, while passionately pursuing a hunger-free community.
