End Hunger In America is dedicated to a simple premise: We can, and should, end hunger in America. Hunger is a foundational problem – without addressing it, many of the other challenges faced by our society, from education to employment to poverty, are simply insoluble. In any given year, almost 49,000,000 people across the United States are faced with hunger or food insecurity, while at the same time we as a nation throw away enough food to meet the need for assistance 10-20 times over.
It is only possible to end hunger if the resources available to us as a people are used efficiently and effectively. In support of that, we create, identify, test, and share tools and models that enhance the ability of organizations and communities to provide adequate, appropriate and timely food assistance to anyone in need.
Founded in 2009 by John Arnold and Jeff Thomas, End Hunger in America (formerly Nonprofit Innovations) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization based in Grand Rapids, Michigan, and governed by a volunteer board of directors.
