Share’s Annual Hunger Appeal: June 5-16

When you say ‘yes’ to supporting our hunger appeal, you support a comprehensive system that provides programs as efficient and effective as:

Our Backpack Program, which provides 1,850 children and their families with a bag of food each week of the school year; the program distributes approximately 14,000 pounds of food per week—or 504,000 pounds for the year.

Our Summer Meals program, which last year served 24,322 free and nutritious meals to children at more than 20 sites throughout Vancouver.

And our Hot Meals program, which in 2016 served 91,805 free and nourishing meals to those in need, as well as 33,000 meals at our family shelters.

Please consider a donation to Share’s Hunger Appeal, June 5 to 16—your donation will be matched up to $100,000 thanks to CenturyLink. (June 5-16 donate on-line at; search by state, then select Share).

Together we can ensure that our neighbors do not go hungry.


June Food Drive for Share’s Hunger Appeal

The need of local families and individuals continues to grow. Share’s Hunger Response Programs—Backpack, Hot Meals and Summer Meals—need your help to continue providing nourishment for the hungry in our community.

Help us raise 10,000 pounds this year by organizing a food drive! We can provide you with a list of most needed items, as well as collection barrels for your donations.

Be creative!
• Host a ‘Stack the Mac’ competition, to see who can make the tallest tower from donated boxes of macaroni & cheese.
• Or select a few of our most needed food items and see which group can collect the most donated food, with catchy names like Protein Team, People for Pasta, Soup-er Squad or The Breakfast Club.

To organize a food drive, contact Meaghann Ande: 360-952-8229 or
